Deborah Klein's stunning exhibition 'Tall Tales' opened last Thursday night with the lovely crowd present keen to see Deb's most recent of works - an exciting new direction for this well established and well loved artist.
Deb has been working in small scale artist books and zines for some time however this is her first exhibition of this style of work. The exhibition is comprised of thirteen hand painted concertina style artist books on Khadi paper, each measures 80 x 15cm when open. They are bound simply with embossed black covers.
Along side the artist books is a collection of 25 miniature paintings, some that worked as studies for the artist books - all complete works in their own right.
Depicted are Deb's 'shadow women'... Each one evocative of an emotion, a narrative, a mystery...
