More Book Art: The Work of Jacqueline Rush Lee | Book Patrol

Still Harmony: The Work of Jacqueline Rush Lee | Book Patrol.

JTL Vascellum 2013

For our first “Friday Fun” item today we post another book artist’s work. I am amazed at what people can do with old (or newer), discarded books. I think you will appreciate the artistry involved in this woman’s work.

Here’s the introduction to this “Book Patrol” post and two of Lee’s works. Visit the link above or the artist’s direct link imbedded below.

Jacqeuline Rush Lee has been creating bookworks for over 15 years. Her work has been and remains a staple in most anthologies that deal with contemporary bookworks. 

In 1998 Rush devised an experimental process where books and periodicals were fired in controlled kiln environments and transformed into what Rush calls “fossilized” books where “the books were no longer recognizable in their usual context, but transformed into poetic remnants of their former selves–ephemeral and ghost-like forms suggesting internal landscapes and a trajectory of time, transformation and memory…”

These “poetic remnants” emit a still harmony that retains the power of the book while transforming them into spectacular works of art.
