Georgia Russell

Sorry we’ve been so absent from posting lately! I (Kristen) am getting married this Saturday and its been keeping all of us pretty busy. For the exciting things that are happening over at {fill in the blank} check out our website: www.fillintheblankgallery.com.

For my wedding I’ve been making dozens of what I like to call book lanterns. The idea was taken from the resale shop Haystack, and we later found out they adopted it from Anthropologie, which always has FANTASTIC recycled paper art on display. They’re really easy to make, just take an old book and remove the cover. Start folding each individual page in whatever pattern you would like. It works best if you fold into the spine. As you fold the spine will start to curl around and by the time you get to the end you’ll have a fantastic sculpture!

Because I’ve spent so much time on these I’m totally crazy about recycled book art right now. I did a search and found a fantastic artist from Scotland named Georgia Russell. She “slashes, cuts, and dissects printed matter, which she then manipulates and re-constructs into extravagant, ornamental, sculptural paper-works” according to England & Co, a gallery in London that represents both emerging and established artists. “The decorative qualities and inherent potential of her found ephemera are fully exploited as she transforms books, music scores, prints, newspapers, maps or photographs – sometimes with flamboyants colour and wild cutting, or with discreet play on the subject or title of her printed matter. Her works over between object and image.”
