Kerry Miller

Re-Imagination of the Book

February 8 - March 8, 2014

Kerry Miller dissects discarded books and rebuilds them into precisely-crafted, extraordinary works of art, through little more than scissors, watercolor and ink. Some of the books are left open to reveal intricate scenes overflowing from the pages. Others remain shut, though their front covers are cut to act as mere frames for the beautiful reconfigurations of the book’s original illustrations. Culling from titles such as Mrs. Beeton’s Book of Household Management (1868) and A Hand-Book to the Order of Lepidoptera, Part 1, v.2, (1896) Miller brings a sense of wonder to volumes that otherwise may be left to gather dust, providing a glimpse into a miniature world of newfound enchantment.
