Guy Laramie (Guy Laramee) from Canada creates incredible sculptures from books. However, he can be called an interdisciplinary artist, who, during his 30-year practice, found his way through such diverse and numerous disciplines as: directing, music, design of musical instruments, video, scenography, sculpture, installation, painting and literature.
He received more than 30 grants and was awarded the Canada Council for the Arts for Joseph S. Stauffer award for his musical composition. His works have received recognition in Canada, USA, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and Latin America. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of cut books with landscapes and structures, entitled as Biblios and Great Wall, in which dense pages of old books turned into serene mountains, plateaus and ancient structures.
Creating his own inimitable pictures from books, he uses old dictionaries and encyclopedias. Of these, he cuts out real mountain landscapes and plateaus, then paints them in natural colors. According to the author, unnecessary books eventually turn into mountains, it only helps to take them the real look. And it's great for him!Photogallery Total | 15 pictures
