Diggin' For Truth

Artist Jennifer Khoshbin carves sculptures using actual books, talking about her process she says:
"In a series of small, self-contained, conceptual pieces entitled The Book Project: diggin’ for the truth, my focus has turned to the sculptural use of books. I methodically carve each page to create a “depth of thought”, and minimally design the surface with mixed images of birds, insects, botany, women, or children, with hints of the inorganic- manufactured objects, advertising, or text.

In these experiments I am trying to delve into the books, into facts and knowledge, as a way to understand my world. Using the surface space to express what I “dig-up”, I seek some resolution between the organic and the inorganic, hoping for the authentic."
