Book sculptures by Jacqueline Rush LeeUnder - Art, Inspiration
We have seen Alexander Korzer-Robinson’s amazing work with books. Here comes Jacqueline Rush Lee who is deeply inspired by the materials, colors and forms in her everyday environment.
For almost a decade I have found myself drawn to the intimate, tactile, and symbolic qualities of used books. I am interested in how these recycled books come with their own histories of use and meaning and how they serve as potent vehicles of expression. With the idea of working with them as my canvas or building block, I transform the books into sculptures that explore and redefine the book as familiar object, medium, and archetypal form. By scrambling the formal arrangement of the book and transposing its material and conceptual qualities, I aim to create evocative art forms that suggest an alternative narrative.

please if you have a moment tell me how things really are and what you are up to. I tried to call yr kaneohe number a year or two back, but it was disconnected.
Meanwhile I have been building a living compound in the highlands of Central America for 7 years, and planting like crazy for subsistence and diversity……got a bit sidetracked by a new adventure, but never forgot the fun we had installing your grad shows.
