Word to Wonder at the Slade Centre was curated by Glen Innes to celebrate art inspired by books. Word to Wonder includes work from Jindra Jehru, Johnny Bull, Jonty Sale, and Chris Edwick. ‘The Alienist’ is a painting on glass about a crime novel by Caleb Carr. Miniature paintings are installed inside a doll house gallery. The ‘Nutshell Gallery’ was inspired by the ‘Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death’ by Corinne May Botz and the ‘Miniaturist’ by Jessie Burton. Also on display is my new triptych ‘Transformations’ inspired by reading William Blake’s ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Storylands’ a book by Amy Jeffs. Visitors are invited to stay a while and browse through the reference books while they look at the exhibition. ‘Transformations’ is pictured here, oil on canvas 120x350cm.
