Compassion – an exhibition of artist’s books – 28 June  to 21 July, Old Ambo Galleries

Compassion – an exhibition of artist’s books – 28 June to 21 July, Old Ambo Galleries

COMPASSION - AN EXHIBITION OF ARTISTS’ BOOKS features the works of 27 leading Queensland and interstate artists. Each of the artists has been invited to contribute 6 newly created artworks in the form of an artist’s book each based on the theme of Compassion: Something that the world is definitely in need of. An artist’s book is a medium of artistic expression that uses the form or function of “book” as inspiration. It is the artistic initiative seen in the illustration, choice of materials, creation process, layout and design that makes it an art object. A book that only contains text is simply a book; even if authored by an artist, it would be a book that belongs in a book store or the shelves of a library. What truly makes an artist’s book is the artist’s intent, and artists have used the book as inspiration in a myriad of ways and techniques, from traditional to the experimental. The book could be made through fine press printing or hand-crafted, the pages illustrated with computer-generated images or cheap photocopies; books became sculptures, tiny and gargantuan; books were sliced up and reconfigured, made from all kinds of materials with unconventional objects incorporated, in unique or limited editions, or produced in multiple copies. With all sorts of ideas behind them, artists continue to challenge the idea, content and structure of the traditional book. All artists’ books will be offered for sale, and there will also be a artisan’s shop within the gallery selling smaller pieces. Several artists will be running workshops and giving talks on different aspects of artists’ books. The Compassion exhibition has been...
