Burning a Paper Plate —Towards a New Art is both an exhibition, and a chapbook launch of a collection of poetry, about art, food and transformation by Steve Rushton.


To burn a paper plate is great.

The stains of food that you just ate

Become with fire and smoke,

Much better not much worse, become

Another kind of universe.


Rushton will read from and talk about Burning a Paper Plate —Towards a New Art at the exhibition opening, where copies of the book are available for purchase priced £4.95.

Steve Rushton studied art at Kingston Polytechnic and art history at The Courtauld Institute and Birkbeck. He painted figurative paintings throughout the 1980s before reaching an impasse on Black Wednesday, 1992. Various jobs followed—lecturer, book packer, milkman (brief but formative period) arts curriculum area leader—until twelve years later he discovered the paper plate, and a new way of bringing art and poetry to life. 

Following the opening the exhibition opies of the book are available at the sales page of the publishers, erbacce-press


Price £4.95.
