About the Artist:
Leslie Gerry's principal medium is the artist's book, from which he also produces limited edition prints. He chooses an unfamiliar place, spends 2-3 weeks of discovery, walking around, taking reference photos and sketching.
Once back in the studio, he spends a year painting. He will “cut out” colour shapes with the stylus, arranging them on different layers, creating a collage. The paintings end up as digital files; vector images which can be reduced or enlarged to any size. Therefore there is no scanning, the files are printed directly from the computer onto a mould-made paper, using a flat-bed UV inkjet printer. The resulting prints are then bound together into a beautiful artist's book, that takes the reader through his impression on a new city.
