Kylie Stillman's Carved Books

Kylie Stillman carves some amazing images into books and stacks of paper, such as this piece entitled Common Oak. Her creative process begins with the materials and proceeds to an envisioning, and not the reverse, as Simon Gregg writes:

For Stillman, the physical size of her donor object is of paramount significance. She questions the need for artists to construct a blank canvas, ‘made to size’, when instead existing objects with an inbuilt history could provide a more meaningful starting point. ‘I felt books from op-shops were good enough’, she says. -via Dude Craft | Photo by the artist
