Spring 2021 Exhibition
Me, Myself & I

Allen Fisher

I have been involved in producing artist’s and poet’s books since the late 1960s.
I am co-publisher of Aloes Books and publisher of the former New London Pride Editions. I am editor/publisher of the art journal Spanner. Last year I published two print runs of my large format, artist’s book Black Pond. I am now in the process of producing a new artist’s book titled: proceeds in the garden, in response to Dante’s fourteenth century Paradiso.

The five pictures on display are part of the series of 66 paintings that make up proceeds in the garden. Those exhibited are from the second part of this series layering responses to Giovanni de Paulo’s work on Dante with watch data from 2019-20. The works include texts translated from the Commedia with fragments from Gerald Manley Hopkins. The completed project will be published as a large scale, limited edition artist’s book.

proceeds in the garden will be a large-scale (297 x 420 mm) limited edition artist’s book, printed on silk-fusion paper with board covers bound with wire.
