Weekly Art: Su Blackwell




All images by Su Blackwell www.sublackwell.co.uk

Welcome to another edition of Not-Quite-Weekly Art. I've shared my obsession with book sculpture here on the blog before, but I've only just discovered the work of Su Blackwell. As an installation artist and art director, Su Blackwell works predominantly in paper in the realms of fairytale and folklore. 

I find the amount of detail she manages to create absolutely astounding, and I love that she includes tiny light fittings to bring the scenes to life. The delicate swing and tree house in the first image.... There are just no words!!

I made my first attempt at a bit of book art today, it's a surprise for some friends so I won't share it just yet.... but watch this space!
