21 June – 19 July 2013
Books acquired by the Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Selected ‘The Best Books for 2011’ by Elizabeth Tonnard for Photo-eye Magazine, USA
Separations exhibited at Eagle Gallery, London, includes 9 prints (33 x 33cm, Giclee printed on 300gsm Somerset paper); 8 special edition cloth-covered solander boxes with books and 11 s/s prints (17x12x2cm); and individual books (24pp, 15x10cm), produced by Book Works.
Elizabeth Tonnard writes: ‘A small, restrained book of tiny seascapes. At first they look like watercolors. The beauty lies in the fact that the photos more or less leave behind their representational qualities to become objects on top of the page. These objects are anonymous, empty, they exist in their color.’ Emma Hill, Eagle Gallery writes: A pared down, minimalist approach is apparent in the works of Jane Grisewood… Separations 2011 – 2013 is a book and related sequence of prints that were inspired by the vast tracts of water that separate the artist’s native New Zealand from Britain. Using the most basic of landscape indicators – the horizontal line, Grisewood has brought together a collection of haunting photographic images made from film, digital camera and mobile phone.’
