Phone Book Carving

Alex Queral is a M.F.A., Graduate School of Fine Arts, University of Pennsylvania,
Philadelphia, PA B.F.A., Magna Cum Laude, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.
He carves faces out of phone books because he likes the three-dimensional quality and
because of the unexpected results that occur working in this medium. He also adds that by
doing this he celebrates the individual lost in the anonymous list of thousands of names
in a directory that is normally discarded every year into an object of longevity.

He first sketches the face on a piece of paper, then carefully lay it over the phone book
and uses a razor blade to carve away at the thousands of pages that lie within phone book
to create the 3D portrait.
