Artist Spotlight: Alexis Arnold

These crystallized books by artist Alexis Arnold stopped me in my tracks. Available at Tappan Collective, each sculpture makes for quite the sparkling statement. In the artist’s own words, “The crystals remove the text and solidify the books into aesthetic, non-functional objects. I manipulate the books with my hands, water, and salt to transform them into artifacts or geologic specimens imbued with the history of time, use, and memory.” Aren’t they lovely…? One crystalized Pride and Prejudice, please. Explore more of Alexis’ work here.

    Absolutely stunning! They remind me of the ice palace scene from Dr. Zhviago.

    Speaking of Pride and Prejudice, I came across a book series called “pulp the classics” in a bookshop the other day and picked up their edition of “Wuthering Heights” (with a cheeky pulp book cover). When I saw an insert about their edition of “Pride and Prejudice” it actually made me laugh out loud: http://www.pulptheclassics.com/titlepage.php?isbn=9781843440710
