The Book Art of Jacqueline Rush Lee

They are books. They are carved, warped, fired like pottery, they are books transformed into visual art.

Lee, a Hawaiian artist most known for her book art, uses a variety of experimental techniques to transform books. Lee says she tries to “obscure the nature of the material,” and by hiding the fact that these are books she changes our expectations about what a book is, forcing us to look anew at these volumes that surround us.
I consider myself experimental year artist who works decisively and intuitively between the borders off kraft and fine art to create sculptures informed by personal and art historical ideas. I amndt has sculptor whose primary medium has been the book form for almost twelve years. I transform used books into art works that create new narrative by applying processes to transform physically and metaphorically.
