Three artists working in different disciplines are brought together for the From the Book show, united in their efforts to bring a new slant to traditional disciplines.
Designer Nancy Slonims, formerly of Pentagram, will present a series of collage pieces, in which she aims to investigate the collage medium through etching.
Slonims uses photopolymer plates to print on to digital, found and collaged material to create her images.
Illustrator Martin Ursell will present his modern, graphic account of the History of Reynard the Fox – an interpretation of the heroic epic, which can be traced back to the ninth century.
Ursell has worked from Caxton’s 1481 Reynard to create his narrative work, which is based around Reynard’s trial and sentencing.
Andrew Baker, who works in digital illustration, takes a new slant on woodcutting – creating vector-based digital images which are then laser-cut into printing blocks for hand printing.
The hand-printed images are then presented next to giclée prints from the same files, which the gallery says ‘puts the earliest form of print face-to-face with the newest’.
From the Book is at the Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street, London W1T, until 19 October.
