Book Art by Guy Laramee

29 Dec

Guy Laramee carves landscapes out of books. He creates mountains and valleys out of encyclopaedias. He renders printed forms obsolete. His deformation of books alludes to the loss of cultures and devalues vast records of knowledge. Our curiosity and our need to classify things has endangered many cultures in the past. Guy Laramee’s papery prospects promote the beauty of the unknown.
