Where form meets function

Internet has been kind to Brian Dettmer over the past year, which is great. We first saw his work at the Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago about ten years ago and have been devotees ever since. Sort of the DaVinci of book sculpting, Dettmer takes books as raw material and finds the sculpture living inside of each one (which he then draws out of the pages using a scalpel and some serious attention to detail). Dettmer has an exhibition up through the end of the month at San Francisco’s Toomey Tourell Fine Art.
