old books of art

I’m fascinated by the work of Russian artist Ekaterina Panikanova.  Such a mix of nostalgia, ephemera, whimsey (and maybe a little sadness??).  I think it would be quite something to see in person.  Kudos indeed Ms. Panikanova.

Artist Ekaterina Panikanova

Her work reminded me of an installation I saw in Fredricksburg, Texas while we were traveling around last month…  I’m not sure who the artist was for this particular piece, but it was interesting enough that I snapped a photo of it with my phone.  But instead of old books, this artist used clipboards with pages from old books.  It’s certainly a little more DIY-ish, but still visually interesting and a similar medium used.
