If Scottish artist Georgia Russell needed another career she could choose to be a surgeon, for her work shows her great skill with sharp scalpels turning books, pictures, music sheets, maps and even currency into elaborate sculptures.

Her shredded art is typically placed in acrylic cases, but the most spectacular “specimens” are in bell jars. A couple of her designs look like lung specimens in a way.The fine strips she cuts out of the books and other paper objects are all artfully arranged and sometimes it is not obvious they were once books.
