As a former graphic artist in the magazine publishing and advertising world, Shane discovered his technical skills enhanced his artistic flair. Over the years, technology drove new desires where today, Shane has transitioned into an artist after 25 years in publishing and software solutions.
Using out of print, vintage reference books Shane carves out a new vision for each tome, page by page, leaving photos, elements and words exposed in a unique, creative visual display. Unlocking the original imprint from the past, drawings, images and words hidden behind bindings, are now visible and uncovered.
Typically discarded, thrown away or no longer desired, each book is carefully sealed as the starting medium. Sculpting while reading the artist leaves an instant perspective, where every page, element and image is left in its original position as the artists exposes interesting images, words and drawings.
Once known for their informational purposes, elements come back to life through this remix, regeneration and renewal of artistic expression of these abandoned, discarded and now recycled books.
