In Conversation: Su Blackwell
November 11th 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Continuing their In Conversation series, Rue Pigalle will speak to paper artist Su Blackwell about her work. Su makes delicate paper sculptures from pages of old books found in secondhand shops. She delights in reading the book before starting her work to inform her process. She created entire restaurant decors, reproduced a book collector’s library, illustrated current events for political magazines…. the list of Su’s international clients and projects is long.
The stories she tells are often rooted in her life events and narratives. The sale of her house, the passing of her father, her travels, a small bit of woodland at the end of the cul-de-sac where she grew up in Sheffield. It always takes a little bit of courage cutting up into a book but the knowledge that she will give the book a new life gives her the conviction to carry on.
