Artist Kelly Gardner uses books as medium to create these beautiful paper & book dresses. She even made an “Alice Dress” using pages from Alice in Wonderland. What a great use of books and paper in place of textiles.
I graduated in 1998 from Bretton Hall College, University of Leeds, with a First Class Honours Degree in fine art painting and printmaking. In 2001 I completed an MA in fine art at the University of Central England, Birmingham. I use a variety of media in my work, painting, collage, photographs and also 3D pieces. Central to all my work is the theme of memory, absence, echoes and traces. Textiles and the empty garment are my main inspiration.
