Reading Landscapes by Kyle Kirkpatrick

UK-based artist Kyle Kirkpatrick transforms books into beautiful landscape sculptures, complete with miniature figurines. The layering in Kirkpatrick's work is remarkable and the text on the pages add an interesting visual to the swirling cuts.

"My practice is primarily concerned with the notion of the imagined landscape. I present man-made objects and natural materials simultaneously to form carefully and meticulously composed installation works. I capitalize on intrigue taking objects out of context reinventing their use, pushing the viewer to see beyond what I present before them, a glass could be interpreted as a lake or a metal bracket a cliff".
