Reading Images by Leslie Sutcliffe

December 8, 2011 - February 18, 2012
Central Library, 2nd floor Balcony Cases
Artwork inspired by encyclopedias, manuscripts and various texts.
We now straddle book culture and cyberspace. Because we have a foot in both worlds, we are granted a glimpse into the way these technologies shape how we derive meaning from what we see. But it is like stepping from a dock onto a boat; we risk losing our balance by staring into the water between our feet. Meaning shifts and may be lost altogether.

The works in this exhibition are oil, graphite and screen printing on wood panels. Obsolete and residual technology is an important element in my work, and residual print technologies were utilized in the fabrication of this work, including thermal screen printing, ditto masters and letterpress type.
