GUY LARAMÉE

Guy Laramée’s artistic practice revolves around his quest for transcendence of and presence in the current moment. The artist’s carved book sculptures are worlds unto themselves. Choosing books that may have become obsolete such as antique encyclopedias, Laramée creates highly detailed scenes of mountains, hillsides, lakes, and hidden doorways, all carved into the pages of the texts he begins with. Subtly painted, the sculptures look more like uncovered secret places than created moments. More recently, his explorations have even included creating a series of work using the humblest of materials: toilet paper. You can learn more about his Toilet Paper Diary here.

Laramée received an MA with distinction from the Université du Québec à Montréal, QC; and an MA and BFA with great distinction from Concordia University, Montréal, QC. He shows his work across North America and at museums including Bellevue Art Museum, Bellevue, WA; Museum of Art and Design, New York, NY; Albuquerque Museum, Albuquerque, NM; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, WA; and Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, Québec City, QC. He is featured in over 14 books and dozens of publications. Laramée’s work is in art collections of such as Messner Mountain Museum, Bolzano, Italy; Museum of Art and Design, New York, NY; and Cameron Art Museum, Wilmington, NC.
