Publication Date 2013
Description This book is published to coincide with the exhibition of Edward Chell’s fabulous new series of plant silhouette paintings in the The Drawing Room, Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, Canterbury, from 22 June – 8 September 2013. Silhouette images of local plant forms by artist Edward Chell. The lacquered gesso panels provide classifications of species thriving in Kent woodland, such as the Blean and King’s Wood, as well as roadside vegetation. Supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and organised in partnership with Stour Valley Arts. On view from the Summer Solstice, Edward Chell’s images connect to a wider set of values associated with silhouettes and shadows: presence and absence, light and photography, and Linnaean systems of shape often used in guide books.
