80 Other recycled wood: The Book Surgeon
So, what’s in a book? One might answer: words, information, ideas, homework, images, love, adventure, wisdom, art. All of the aforementioned are true. A further question, what do you mean by art? You play the game: pictures, images, ideas about art – how to do, how to improve, how to buy or sell art, how to critique art, how to display art. Again, all of these are good ideas. One last question, what do books, recycling wood, and carving have to do with each other?
Humor me: books are made out of paper –> paper is made out of wood –> therefore, if you make art objects, real art, not just talk about art, out of books you have achieved status of recycling wood through carving thereby creating art. And your pieces fit this blog perfectly. And even if they didn’t fit all those categories, they are great pieces of carving.
