Standford Kay paintings

I love these paintings of books by Stanford Kay.

My favorites are from the Gutenberg Variations 2009-10:

In his artist statement, Stanford says:
"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 itsstrokes and drips into reason and emotion.

Really beautiful thinking behind really beautiful paintings.
