Curator's Eye

Janiece Murray has made a series of works using Western book illumination techniques such as raised gilding and border designs. These pieces, some taking a bound book form, depict stages of ‘creation’ in both geometric and symbolic form. Drawing on her own spirituality and religious upbringing, these works are intended for devotion and introspection. The practices of calligraphy and gilding, commonly associated with religious art, are at the heart of Murray’s ongoing project.
