An imaginative and thought-provoking exhibition that mixes various media opens at the Lewis Gallery in at Rugby School on Monday November 9.

Paper Scissors Stone: Taking Paper Beyond the Page involves altered books, interpretations of paper, language and more.

It showcases works by four artists. Janie Graham brings discarded books back to life in her “intricate yet playful” sculptures, while communication, meaning and subtexts are deeply explored by Jo Howe in the fragmented and reworked books or other print media .

Through the medium of text, letters and language, Mark L’Argent creates textural word-pictures that aim to evoke mood and atmosphere, while Caroline Lumb exhibits including hand-dyed papers, additionally melding these with paintings and other materials. Hillary Taylor meanwhile works in a range of media, offering different perspectives on everyday items.

The Lewis Gallery is open between 2pm and 5pm Monday to Friday. The exhibition runs until Friday December 11.
