Artists Book Cornucopia II Repurposed Picks – Carreiro & Paulsrud

Two of the works in this show are from re-purposed books each quite different in both production and final presentation than the other.

ABC11 Carreira passagePassage, by Linda Carreiro, no longer functions as a book – the pages held in open position with a delicate papercut overlay. The piece is mounted on an aluminum stand.

Linda Carreiro’s artwork is centred around an examination of anatomical culture, and the book as 
material. Pieces resulting from this exploration have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States and in Europe. Currently, she is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Calgary in Canada.

The one of a kind book is priced at $500.

ABC11 Pamela_Paulsrud_Touchstones_1

The second is an installation by Pamela Paulsrud, a grouping of her Touchstones (books reshaped with various power tools) intermixed with the river rocks that inspired them. Not only is each individual book interactive, the entire installation can be re-configured in countless variations.

Pamela Paulsrud is a visual artist. In creating both intimate pieces and large-scale installations, her 
work as a papermaker, calligrapher, book artist and collaborator has been recognized internationally. Her 
exploration in energy and vibration, letters and lines, her love of the land, the earth and it’s resonance, 
inspires both her work and her life.

The installation, which includes 35 Touchstones, several pounds of river rocks selected by the artist and priority shipping to a US address, is $2275. Individual books are $65 each.
