Berlin artist executes sculpting on a new canvas

Eviscerating text and whitespace from antique books, Alexander Kortzer-Robinson creates entirely new narratives from only pre-existing charts, graphs, illustrations and other visual elements inside of each book. The result is a relatively 3-dimensional collage of relics that have lost their value over the passage of time. Much like Guy Laramee’s Landscapes Carved from Books, the tomes regain new purpose by presenting an entirely unique artistic aesthetic. Korzer-Robinson’s works truly render an exploration and deconstruction of nostalgia, which you can see in the gallery below from his 2012 collection of new works. The Berlin artist will also showcase his work at the Affordable Art Fair in Hampstead, London beginning this week.
