LETTER ESS

Karen Florance

Karen Florence and Louisa

Currently at CCAS City we have the fabulous Caren Florence, legendary Canberra book and print maker. Caren’s interest in the minutiae of texts or the printed word is very much evident in this elegant and quite simply gorgeous exhibition which is based on a solitary wood type character whose alphabet has been lost. Karen describes the show as a mediation on wood, paper, typography, drawing and print and that sums it up succinctly. She is often known to focus on the printed word – using traditional letterpress and bookbinding processes as well as the latest technologies. Also known as Ampersand Duck you can find everything you need to know about Caren right HERE. And don’t miss this amazing exhibition at CCAS City until 27 February.
