    Like a pathologist performing an autopsy on a victim who died of an unknown cause, artist Guy Laramee takes old books and carves out shapes that shock, surprise and amaze us. In his latest series, “Guan Yin,” the artist unearths mountains, caves, volcanoes, even water!

Book creations by Guy Laramee. His works are so sculptural, so movingly natural in their form, they’ve really touched me. His works are inspired by a fascination with so-called progress in society: a thinking which says the book is dead, libraries are obsolete and technology is the only way of the future.

Artist/sculptor: Guy Laramee whose medium here is large books which he carves meticulously into landscapes, volcanoes, and even waves

Artist, Guy Laramee transforms thick tomes into incredible topographical features including mountains, caves, volcanoes, and even water. Many of the works are part of a new project titled Guan Yin, a series of work dedicated to the forces that enable individuals to endure grief and pain, or in his words “the mysterious forces thanks to which we can traverse ordeals.”
