A Moment Transformed: An exhibition of prints and book transformations by Emma Kelly and Kate Bufton.

About

Emma Kelly's prints and Kate Bufton's book transformations will be showcased together from 27th November 2010 to 19th February 2011 in Warrington Museum & Art Gallery's newest gallery space. This space is designed to showcase the creative talents of local artists working in and around Warrington, and Emma & Kate are the first artists to be chosen to exhibit. Emma captures moments from personal travel experiences and transforms them into printed visual memories. The outcome becomes that of a personal visual diary. With her unique way of manipulating and applying her inks Emma's work has been hailed as 'a visual feast' by Linda Goodman, editor of Printworks Magazine. Kate uses old books as an art medium and, by various cuts and folds, transforms them into pieces of art. Each sculpture emphasizes the beauty of the book, taking the object from a carrier of text to an object of art that can now be admired. Each book has its own individual presence, as it is statically fixed in an open position. Together their work celebrates giving new life to memories and printed matter. The images reflect the printed element of the books, whilst the books demonstrate through manipulation how innovative a book can become.
