About the Book:
In October 2017, Leslie Gerry experienced the delights of Venice, sketched and took many reference photographs and then set about the task of trying to recapture that Venetian magic. Twenty nine paintings and twelve months later, Venice Reflections emerged, a very personal record of his interaction with the city. The text is comprised of extracts from the classic Venice by Jan Morris.
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.
