Su Blackwell is an English artist who makes children’s story like book figures. She changes level pages into three-dimensional structures and develops whole scenes loaded with riddle. Su discovers her books in used book shops and always reads them first before starting to sculpt.
Her latest series ‘Dwelling’ is inspired by folk stories. It features wood cottages, tree-huts, lighthouses and other structures that usually light up when they’re inhabited. Su chose to illuminate her intricate sculptures and by doing so she added to them even more depth. “I have been compelled to create these dwellings now, as I am in the process of selling my house. I am leaving London, to possibly living in a quiet town by the sea. The process of buying a new house is daunting, an emotional upheaval.”
