Many artists would tell you that their art fuels them, that they need it as much as they need food and water, that it is as much a part of them as any of their body parts. We think paper artist and photographer Bronia Sawyer, whose work we recently spotted over at Lost at E Minor, would agree. In her new ongoing series Body parts, live breath art, Sawyer takes the concept of art-as-self literally, building beautiful models of internal body parts — lungs, pelvis, and spine, plus a head for good measure — out of rolled up pages from books. Perhaps eventually she’ll be able to build an entire person. Either way, we’ll be following along. Click through to see some of Sawyer’s work, and then head on over to her website for more.
