Artist Guy Laramée turns old books into stunning natural landscape sculptures

Guy Laramée is an interdisciplinary artist based in Montreal, Canada, with over 30 years of career creating artworks in such numerous disciplines as theater writing and directing, contemporary music composition, musical instrument design and building, singing, video, scenography, literature, installation, painting and, finally, sculpture.

In his hands, old hard-bound dictionaries and encyclopedias turn into stunning natural landscapes. Sculptures of mountain valleys, caverns and uneven terrain carved and painted by hand. But many of them have also man-made constructions and human interventions, such as small temples carved into the rock, rustic houses and roads.
