Catalogue to accompany the Alison Turnbull Exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion Sat 9 Nov 2013 - Sun 23 Feb 2014.

Alison Turnbull is known for the intricate abstract paintings and drawings she creates from found materials, such as diagrams, plans, charts and maps. The exhibition presents new and recent works exploring ideas around observation, orientation and perspective.

Two of her new paintings have their starting point in drawings by the Pavilion's architect, Erich Mendelsohn; the elevation of the Observatory in Potsdam for Einstein's Tower (2013) and the blueprint for the Pavilion itself for Mendelsohn's Staircase (2013). Other paintings include North and South (2011) derived from a constellation map of the northern and southern hemispheres and Ecliptic (2013) referencing the imaginary line that describes the orbit of the sun. Across the gallery space are six of the artist's Drawing Tables (2010 – ) an ongoing series of drawings made on printed stationery from around the world, presented in specially designed tables.
