For all the lovers of Artist Books - Please feel welcome to join me for the opening of PIVOT at Onespace Gallery, Brisbane on Friday 14th June 6-8pm. Pivot continues until 27th July 2019.

I'm delighted to be showing in PIVOT alongside a stellar line-up of Queensland artist including:
Bianca Beetson; Ross Booker; Ana Paula Estrada; Andrea Higgins; Nicola Hooper; Louis Lim + Beth Jackson; Jo Lankester; Deb Mostert; Matthew Newkirk; Thomas Oliver; Michael Phillips; William Platz; Zoe Porter and Glen Skien.

Pivot is a group exhibition that seeks to highlight the connection between artists’ 2D wall works and their forays into artist books. Artist books often compel an audience or viewer to pay greater attention, they seduce the hands of the viewer into action – by their scale, texture, devices, and sheer manageability as objects.

Works will be exhibited as ‘duets’, a wall-based work accompanied by an artist book that is situated beneath. This format aims to explore the artist’s ‘hinge’, the conceptual intent or narrative purpose which shifts the work from a wall work unencumbered public encounter, to a more intimate insight into the artist’s practice of related books.

Look forward to seeing you there!
