​'A Time For Every Purpose' features recent works from London based illustrator and paper artist Laura Sayers.


'A Time For Every Purpose' leans on the theme of celebrating the mundane, presenting illustrated scenes that explore the spaces around us, comment on the human condition, and present different character personalities as a reflection of the everyday.

Through manipulating different layers of paper, freely cut with scissors and finished with painted details often on a miniature scale, the result is a bold but intricate way of image-making that experiments with colour, shadow and shape. While some of the scenes on display are intended for children's literature, the subject matter goes beyond the child audience. Sayers suggests that there is beauty in the repetitious state that we often find ourselves in, with a selection of pieces made last year in Glasgow which touch on a more stripped back view of our surroundings, referencing Biblical themes of 'working with your hands' or 'fanning into flame'.
