The Book World
In his life, the famous Canadian artist Guy Laramie tried almost all kinds of art, while he discovered the book world. What he did not do: writing and directing, design and music, painting and installation, building and singing … The list seems to go on forever.
The Book World is a new project by Laramie
Even when we say that Gai Larami is an artist, this is not entirely correct. Most likely, this is a universal person who can express his «I» in any field. However, recently, in his creative life, he accidentally visited the book world and stayed there forever …
Recently, Guy Laramie started a completely new kind of art — cutting out architecture and landscapes from old books. At the same time, the author emphasizes that all the books he uses in his work are very old and dilapidated and can not be read at all. The book world, according to Laramie — is a unique three-dimensional composition, which carries the whole depth of thought and soul.
The artist cuts out all his compositions with a scalpel. As Larami himself remarked, when he takes the scalpel into his hands, he forgets about everything around, feeling himself a real creator, who creates a new world from old, yellowed, unnecessary books.
The thread of books — a new book world for the creator
Guy Laramie is not just engaged in carving in books, he can accurately and in detail convey the beauty of nature. After the landscape is ready, it paints its natural natural colors. On the author’s website, and indeed on the Internet, you can see a lot of photos of the world, which the author managed to create with his own hands from dusty, unnecessary books.
Guy Laramy created a series of works under the titles «Great Wall» and «Biblio». For these sculptures, he used only encyclopedias and dictionaries written in Chinese and English. When you look not at his masterpieces, the soul is admired. After all, such wonders can only create nature and Gai Laramie. In his works he was able to convey all the reliefs and plains of mountains, forests, the refinement of rivers and lakes.
Unique are not only landscapes, but also sculptures of buildings. The author clearly conveys all the details of the buildings. You look at a small sculpture, but you see a huge building. It seems that you are now, and this is the place.
