British artist Su Blackwell works predominantly within the realm of paper. Best known for constructing delicate sculptures from the pages of books, she uses the ephemeral qualities of paper to represent feelings of wonder and melancholy. Many of her book sculptures are inspired by the time she spent playing in the woods as a child, and she creates tranquil landscapes from the pages of fairy tales and written folklore.
