TRANSFORMING BOOKS INTO EXTRAORDINARY SUMMER FLOWERS

Old books gain new life in the fascinating work of Hawaii-based artist Jacqueline Rush Lee. Lee transforms the very nature of her volumes, giving them new narratives, elegant in concept and design. Primarily working with reclaimed books, Jacqueline chooses specimens that have been lovingly handled, often with carefully taped pages and repaired spines, honoring these qualities even as she dramatically alters their physical forms.Artist Spotlight Jacqueline Rush Lee Image 02Much more than words on a page, Lee’s subjects become delicate organic forms with new meaning. The gentle floral shapes reference their former texts but seem to whisper softly of another tale.Artist Spotlight Jacqueline Rush Lee Image 03Originally from Northern Ireland with an MFA from the University of Hawaii, Jacqueline has been creating her sculptures for over seventeen years.
