Guy Laramee from Canada creates increadible sculptures from old books. Rather the material for the art works are old dictionaries and encyclopedias. From these books Guy carves landscapes and plateau, and then paints them in natural colors. “My work, in 3D as well as in painting, originates from the very idea that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening.” Enjoy!
