I have been reading books ever since my teachers taught me to understand how magically transportive stringing all kinds of letters could be and so, the idea that books are alive always felt very much the case every time I opened a new written adventure.
Artist Bethany Bickley has given the idea that comes have a life all their own new and utterly beguilingly beautiful meaning with these paper sculptures which have created to thematically match the books from which they are drawn.
A driving force for Bickley’s wholly unique and distinct art is her desire, notes, Laughing Squid, to bring “together narratives and images to tell a complete story.”
“I’m a creative problem solver who brings words and visuals together to tell a story with impact and purpose. If there are no visuals, I create them.”
