Anatomical Paper Sculptures by Lisa Nilsson

Lisa Nilsson’s anatomical cross sections have a realistic look that makes us cringe slightly as we look inside a duck, a human brain, or human lungs. The cross sections are created from carefully spiralled, folded, and rolled strips of tissue, specifically Japanese mulberry paper, and reclaimed gilded edges from books. Lisa Nilsson’s patience and steady hands are evident in every piece created using the ancient of quilling. The results are stunning their realism. The stunning rolls, folds, and twists in paper create a feeling of admiration at the skill required to create these fascinating, but sometimes unsettling, cross sections of life. Have fun!

Alexander Korzer-Robinson’s Book Art

UK-based artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson carves out spectacular storybook scenes from old books and encyclopedias. All images in the final work are seen from their original place in the book. Korzer-Robinson creates his book art by cutting into pages, exposing some of the illustrations while removing others, but never adding anything into a scene. “The most challenging aspect for me is to find the hidden narrative in the books I cut up… During the actual process, cutting around some of the images and cutting out others, the narrative of the composition evolves further, and the final pieces is a result of planning and chanceā€¦ for me encyclopedias are as good as it gets. Since the articles of an encyclopedia are just connected by alphabetical order, it creates the most interesting juxtapositions. To make meaning out of this mass of seemingly disjointed imagery is a true joy for me.” Have fun!
