It boggles my mind to think of the time and effort that must go into this creation process. Guy Laramee is not only a sculptor but also a painter, writer, and composer – but it is his incredible landscapes and structures made out of paper that are, I think, most striking.
Of these works, the artist writes:
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.
