Jordan Buschur: Book Painter
Place Holders, 2013
There is no doubting Jordan Buscher has the book love in her veins. Give her some oil paint and canvas and she is off to the books.
About her work she says:
The paintings in this body of work use collections and arrangements of books to implant ordinary objects with psychological meanings. The groupings of books, stacked or on shelves, act as a stand in for one person’s accumulated knowledge and memories. Some stacks of books remain blank: full of potential or conversely, impenetrable. Other groups of books include painted words and images to act as clues into meaning.
Here is a healthy sampling of her recent work:
