Stolen Space...




Chris Stain ‘Grapes Of Wrath’
An Under Pressure Art Production ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’
Alexander Korzer-Robinson ‘Inner Life II’

StolenSpace Gallery in London has an exhibition of book covers on at the moment called "Never Judge...?". A group exhibition in association with Penguin Books UK where artists were invited to create an original artwork for the novel of their choice the size of a traditional Penguin book (198 x 129 mm). A great concept for a show and some marvelous artworks also. Apparently the 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea sculpture/book cover has mechanical parts that move the tentacles - very cool. All of these images were found on the StolenSpace Works From the Show page, there are about a hundred more books to look at if you have the time!

PS. Happy Birthday Dylan!

  1. What a fantastic idea for an exhibition. I do so love that last work as well.

    You must check out Dave Meads Beard photography when you get a chance too. Remind you of a certain family of brothers? I've sent Woody the link - http://www.davemead.com/home.html
