Kylie Stillman - Altered Books and Paper Carving

Kylie Stillman engraves books and stacks of paper as if they are blocks of stone.

Silver Banksia, 2010, paper carving, 6,000 sheets of computer paper and wood base, 56 x 40 x 30 cm

Starburst Winter Wren, 2009, paper carving, printed paper, diameter 13.5 cm

With textures so inviting, I imagine running my fingers across the nooks and crannies of Kylie's ethereal tree and bird sculptures.
