Exhibition: Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh
3 – 27 April, but open to view indefinitely online.
A library is a collection: of thoughts, of interlocking spaces and laden shelves, books, documents, letters. Wood rubs shoulders with leather, vellum, paper, thread.
Susie Leiper has a new exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery in Edinburgh showing new work which forms a library of sorts: large oil paintings reference shelves, books, pages and words; small wooden tablets hint at book covers and page design; up-cycled vellum documents take on a new life as abstract paintings; and one-off artist books recall the precious manuscript books of the middle ages.
Works can be purchased online through the gallery.
