Lovely paintings by New York artist Stanford Kay.

He explains: “Books as images within these paintings offer formal modernist possibilities while also serving as an embodiment of content. 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 its strokes and drips into reason and emotion.” Beautiful!
