The Muses, 2022 , Discarded books, acrylic ink, acrylic paint on wood panel framed in steel, 62 x 50 x 4 inches

Nick Georgiou crafts elaborate, anthropomorphic sculptures from discarded printed materials, providing a new kind of value to the slowly fading technology. Georgiou, who was born in Queens and now works in Tucson, Arizona, uses old newspapers and paperback books as his media. He begins by dying the pages before gluing and sewing them into wild, lifelike configurations resembling mythical totems and tribal masks. Georgiou's colorful sculptures, at once playful and bittersweet, archive the remnants of the printed word while imbuing said remains with an otherworldly, seemingly immortal power.
