Howard Gardens, Cardif

This recent work, Withdrawn, will be exhibited at Howard Gardens Gallery in Cardiff from the September 20th - October 8th. The work is a collection of withdrawn university library books, saved from being discarded and embossed with a curious collection of statements, culled from the text of each volume. Each statement seems in retrospect almost prophetic of the devaluation of the information and wisdom contained in these well thumbed, yellowing library books.
