Willem Weismann won the 2015 painting prize and his exhibition Alphabet Soup is on at the Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London, E3 2SJ. The exhibition captures the sensation of being engrossed in a book to the exclusion of everything else.
These are great and evocative paintings.
But there is another interesting idea going on here – engagement. Books are for sale and you can copy a painting, on the colour photocopier to make your own cover. I like this idea.
The East London Painting Prize exhibition is free, open Tues – Sun 10-5, until 20th Dec 2015.
