“In the 21st century, the book has also become a metaphor for a time that has passed.”
--Cara Barer

Fusing found books with the mediums of sculpture, painting, and photography, Cara Barer gives books new forms and enduring life, expressing her love of words on paper. Bare’s photographs capture her transmutations of printed materials in an ever increasing digital era.

“I am inspired by vintage or used objects: records, books, furniture, anything that has a history.” --Mike Stilkey

Mike Stilkey draws inspiration from the histories of everyday objects. Imagining their back-stories, Stilkey incorporates the stories behind the everyday object into his painted book sculptures. His whimsical cast of characters inhabit the ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales painted on hard bound books.

“I like working with words, pieces of text, the odd string of numbers.”
--Melinda Tidwell

Using discarded books as her primary material, Melinda Tidwell constructs abstract collages from the text, fabric and spines of old books. Tidwell cuts away the materials from their original context, creating texture, shape and nostalgia.
