Catherine Bastien | Visual Artist

Biography and Links

I have been working with this medium for a long time now. Making cards, scrapbooking, stamping, altering books, gluing, cutting, sewing, or folding. It's a material so humble and versatile that a creative eye can transform it into something surprising and wonderful.

Right now, I am mostly using books, old books, given books, used books, lost books. I give them a new appearance, a new form, a new style, and suddenly the final shape takes a new meaning.

But nothing is set forever. You can always expect new surprising things!

Artist Statement

It is all about paper. All kind of paper. Books, newspaper, cardboard, wrapping paper, papier-mâché, tissue paper, and more.
