Kaleidoscopic Artwork Made Out of Old Phone Books by Caroline Stanley. Cara Barer’s work feels like a Rorschach test of sorts. The Houston-based fine art photographer takes discarded printed materials like maps, encyclopedias, phone books, and old computer manuals, and transforms them into colorful abstract sculptures, which she then shoots against a stark black backdrop.
laura j wryan: 2006 pencil and colored pencil on crumpled paper 10 x 8 inches (approx.) A little drawing that came out of frustration…a mess that I started to destroy and then decided I liked the texture of the crumpled paper and decided to play with it…seriously, I was just playing. THEN it was one of my drawings selected for my first exhibition with my Fred at the Delavan Art Center in Syracuse…sometimes things work out in unexpected ways…LJW 12/5/2012
