In my continuing exploration of the limits of the imagination, I’ve been looking at ways to use familiar objects and media in unfamiliar ways. Today I’m sharing the book paintings of Russian surrealist, Ekaterina Panikanova. Born in St. Petersburg in 1975, Panikanova graduated at the top of her class from the Academy of Fine Arts and was subsequently given a studio to work from for five years. She now lives and works in Rome.

“Artist Ekaterina Panikanova creates densely layered paintings using old books and other documents as her canvas. Her work ranges somewhere between painting, installation and collage. The ink and acrylic paintings often show nostalgic scenes mixed with images of cakes, animals and vintage items.” (Source)
