Press release from City Gallery
In her show Open Book, artist Shelby Head uses the book as an art object. The page lends itself to an internal and external dialogue using layers to hide and reveal content where idea over object and the beauty of form are at play. Head uses the versatile, flexible and ordinary material of paper to create a visual interpretation of text, material, form and content.
