What is an artist’s bookwork??  It’s a series of independent works, sometimes called ‘chapters’ or ‘volumes’, that tie together in some way to make a whole work. The stories of the book can be images, with or without text, and can be created on any material. Come and view Shona’s own bookwork entitled “Book of Journeys” on display until February 23 at the Gallery.

About the Artist
Shona J. Dietz is a multi-media artist whose installations blend digital audio or video work with established art forms like drawing, painting or sculpture. By combining traditional and contemporary practices, perceptions of time and space merge, sometimes creating ambiguity, which is a nod to the way memory operates. This exhibition investigates the validity of memory, which in reality is our own personal truth. How we retell the story allows us to reconcile our thoughts and actions...thus inevitably affecting the social environments of the future.
And we all have stories to tell…
