lovely shot of the poor book lol i love the texture and tone!
Ginnie Hart: It does give you an idea about to do with those books you don't want anymore, right, Elaine?? smile
Cool. Do you recall the artist?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael, but, no, I did not pay attention to who the artist is. Maybe Astrid can help me figure it out from the pamphlet we have when she gets home from work.

Unique!

And...beautifully presented by our very own...Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: As you know well by now, Ray, flattery gets you (just about) everywhere. smile
That's a brilliant sculpture - if that's what it can be called - I love your angle and the tones!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It gave me all kinds of ideas about what can be done with old, unwanted books. smile

Wow, I think the Gorcums Museum will regret not to have used your picture at the billboards...
Fabulous treatment. The exhibition is unique and a joy to go to.
Ginnie Hart: Well, you're kind and generous, MLMA! I'll never forget this exhibit because of showing it to Nicholas when he was here. And to think it's just a couple blocks away and we can go back at any time, if we wish!

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. It really was quite amazing to see what all can be done with and made out of paper. We were amazed!

Oh, what did you with the book? You know I love books more than all! The next time I have to visit this museum.
Ginnie Hart: Our little Gorcums Museum in the city hall behind the Grote Kerk (a couple blocks from us) has exhibits all year long that are just delightful, Philine. This one lasts till 13 September.
Paper Art has become very popular here Ginnie.
What a stunning image!
Ginnie Hart: The exhibit here is just astounding, Richard. You'd never believe how much can be done with paper!!! Thank you.
You have presented this work of art beautifully Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Janet.
Well it is an alternative to recycling them into toilet rolls Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: That's for sure, Bill! smile

Now that is impressive and for once a piece of art I can appreciate smile It looks like a tree which is very appropriate, of course.
Ginnie Hart: Impressive but hard to dust, Alan? HA!

It could be the paper artist Boukje Voet:
"Boukje Voet (Dordrecht, 16 juni 1983) maakt sinds het begin van haar beeldend kunstenaarschap boeksculpturen. Ze versnijdt, scheurt en verknipt de boeken. Door het papier daarna weer te plakken en krullen bouwt ze de boeken op haar wijze om tot een volumineuze boeksculpturen. Zoals afbreuk en opbouw ook keer op keer in de natuur plaatsvindt. Ze observeert en speelt met tijdsverloop, licht, schaduw, structuur en patronen. Alles komt voort uit haar grootste inspiratiebron: de natuur. Haar doel is met haar werk even stil te staan bij betekenis van natuur. Naast het bewerken van boeken gebruikt ze ook andere technieken, zoals fotografie, tekenen en stop-motion films. In 2010 waren haar boeksculpturen te zien op de Holland Papier Biënnale."
Ginnie Hart: Could be, Philine. I'll check with Astrid when she comes home from work. Of course, I can always walk back to the museum and check it out! smile
What cre8ive things people come up with! I am always in awe.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mary. I feel the same way!
OMG you're not gonna believe this!
I went to see this exhibition last weekend! How did you know?!

Sacrilege to do that to an old book - even if you can make a great picture of it. Not great - make that 'excellent'!
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Louis. Thank you. I wonder if I could do this to any book???
Isn't that amazing, Maureen has made a couple of things at her weekly handicraft group from paperbacks, one of them is a Hedgehog.
Ginnie Hart: How fun, Brian. You'll have to show us that one day! smile

Great title and image Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne. I'm so eager to catch up with you after your trip!
I wonder how old that book is...
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Larry, but of course I couldn't touch. smile

Superb subject and processing Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Marie.
This is wonderful, Ginnie,well presented too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I like this a lot Ginnie, like a bunch of flowers
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad. It does have a way of mesmerizing us, doesn't it!
Clever stuff. I feel guilty just turning a corner over to remember where I get to, I must be suppressing hidden talent.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Martin. We call that dog-earring a page to find our place later. smile
Makes a fine image too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn.
That is so cool. Terrific shot and the piece of art is wonderful.
(If this ever gets through. I am getting to hate that Shutterchance CAPTCHA)
Ginnie Hart: You are so kind to be so persistent in commenting here, Michael. I think I'll check with our administrator to see if anything can be done about it. (sigh)

On the one hand this piece of art is breathtaking while on the other hand it's heartbreaking. Isn't that what makes it most fascinating? smile Love the processing!
Ginnie Hart: We're going back to this museum today (Saturday), Petra, with some friends of ours who haven't seen it yet. I plan to take more time really observing this time around! Thank you. Yes, it's a bittersweet art creation!
