Art Books: Paintings of Books by Stanford Kay

Anna’s post on organizing books reminded me of the artwork of Stanford Kay — acrylic paintings of books shelved, books stacked and books piled.

Both paintings and books are vessels for ideas, experience and memory. The books we read and the paintings we love and choose to live with, define us. A book requires the reader to assemble images and ideas out of its signs and symbols. Likewise, a painting asks that you translate its strokes and drips into reason and emotion.Stanford Kay
