Today the Department of Beguiling Book Art is exploring the works of West London-based artist Su Blackwell, who transforms everything from novels to nature guides into marvelous book sculptures. Before using the books as her artistic medium, she always reads the books she’s about to transform. Blackwell uses the books themselves to create enchanting visual art that represents the stories told on the very pages used to make her artwork. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee became houses on a street in Maycomb, Alabama, one of which must be Boo Radley’s house because of the big tree out in the front yard, in which he left treasures for Scout and Jem Finch: Blackwell’s latest series of literary sculptures focuses on how a person’s own home can fuel their imagination. “The works include dwellings, such as lighthouses, wood cottages, tree-huts and houses, which appear to be inhabited as often they are lit up, but the scenes I have created are stark and the houses often solitary,” Blackwell says. “I have been inspired by water, by lakes, and the sea. There is a sense that one needs to take a journey to travel to these dwellings.” Picture above are 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Jungle Book, Field Guide to Wild Flowers (XI), The Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage, The House in the Oak Tree, The Snow Goose, The Dark is Rising, and The Stork Wife. If you’re in London you can view these exquisite sculptures in person at the Long & Ryle Gallery from September 17th to October 9th, 2015. Head over to Su Blackwell’s website to check out more of her enchanting artwork. [via My Modern Metropolis]
