Savannah-based artist Bethany Buckley uses pages torn from books, magazines and newspapers to make extraordinary sculptures. Sometimes they simply represent scenes from her imagination, but often she uses pages from a specific work to represent figures and themes from that very same book, taking pleasure in creating imagined visuals where none have existed before. See below her introspective figure of Esther Greenwood, heroine of Sylvia Plath's Bell Jar. Bickley says that she enjoys the act of merging narrative and imagery “to tell a story with impact and purpose. If there are no visuals, I create them.”
