My artistic life began with the book as the vehicle to carry my creative expression. For many years I continued with the book format, simultaneously making traditional and non-traditional books. For the past several years my artwork has morphed from the traditional book format to book-like objects to the current wall sculptures. However, as much as I like the physical object, be it a book or sculpture piece, it is the content behind the work that drives me to create the artwork.

Stahlecker’s work is not traditional bookmaking. It goes far beyond that. All books contain words and/or images that attempt to convey knowledge, whether it be in the form of a story, a history or perhaps a theory… This art is about the concept of books.
