Paintings on Book Pages By Ekaterina Panikanova

Ekaterina Panikanova painting7 Ekaterina Panikanova painting8

The work of St. Petersburg born artist Ekaterina Panikanova makes use of our complex relationships with books.  She mounts books on the gallery wall, splayed and aligned.  Panikanova use the collective surface of these books as her perculiar ‘canvas’.  Like the ink and paper filling the books’ pages, her paintings are often black and white.  In a way, the pieces carry an air similar to old books.  They have a subtle atmosphere of nostalgia, of a recording and remembering.  [via]
