Known for intricate abstract works based on found materials such as diagrams, plans and maps, Alison Turnbull presents new paintings and works on paper exploring ideas around observation, orientation and perspective. Two large-scale paintings, Mendelsohn’s Staircase and Einstein’s Tower, stem from the architectural plans of the iconic buildings by Erich Mendelsohn, De La Warr Pavilion (1935) and Einstein Tower Observatory (1921) in Potsdam. Other paintings derive from a range of source material; from a simple diagram of constellations found in a school textbook to a recent photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Also presented are works on paper including Drawing Tables (2010-), an ongoing series of drawings made on printed stationery collected from around the world. Displayed in specially designed vitrines, the drawings are made in response to the subtle differences in the proportions and graphic elements of these everyday papers.

Alison Turnbull is represented by Matt’s Gallery, London.
