More Astounding Negative Space Book Sculptures

Melbourne-based sculptor Kylie Stillman expertly carves three-dimensional silhouettes of birds and plants into stacks of books and paper. Ultimately, the result is a reverse sculpture where the primary subject is omitted from the solid structure whose negative space remains intact. It's visually astounding and seems almost like an illusion, as though our minds are playing tricks on us. There's a clear reference to nature in all of these hand-cut sculptures. Additionally, Stillman's tree sculptures seem to create a sort of irony that alludes to whence it came from. In these series of works, paper creates trees.
