Based on Drawing Tables (2010– ), an ongoing series of drawings made on printed stationery collected from around the world, this artist’s book features 60 works from the series reproduced to actual size, accompanied by an insightful text by Briony Fer.
Each drawing is named after the city or town the paper was bought or found in, often in the form of exercise books or pads.
Turnbull transforms these everyday papers, through the act of drawing, by responding to the subtle differences in their proportions and graphic layouts.
Alison Turnbull lives and works in London. Recent exhibitions include: Alison Turnbull, Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh; Galápagos, Gulbenkian Galapagos Artists Residency Programme, and Observatory, Matt’s Gallery, London.
Published to accompany the exhibition at De La Warr Pavilion, 9 November 2013 – 23 February 2014.
This book is published with four separate colour covers: yellow, orange, blue, and grey.
