I’ve heard of cutting the insides of a book out and hiding valuables, but this takes it to an all new level. The talented artist Guy Laramee has worked as a writer, composer, director, singer, and the list goes on, but here he has created beautiful works of art out of old books.
So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. 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. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.
