The Oak Tree: a tribute to eternity

Saturday 10.02.24–Sunday 11.02.24

During this year’s Artists’ Bookmarket, we present an exhibition of work by artist Jane Hyslop. The Oak Tree: a tribute to eternity presents original drawings and pochoir prints from her latest artist book project inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel, Orlando.

Hyslop’s work develops themes of place and identity where human and natural histories meet. Her ideas are developed through research, observational drawing, reading, topographic study and material experimentation. The resulting layered narratives are brought together in drawing, printmaking and artist’s books. Hyslop lectures in Art and Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh.
