    DESCRIPTION

    Sampler is an artist's book on the occasion of Aleana Egan's solo show at Void Gallery, Derry.

    Egan has a nuanced approach to working with materials that are familiar and that often have residual memories associated with them. The word 'sampler' derives from the Latin exemplum, meaning an ‘example’. In the context of sewing and textiles, it was originally like a personal notebook for keeping stitches and motifs of interest together. This publication brings these works together under this title to emphasise the ephemeral and fragmentary.  It will continue her investigation into creating an ambient space through which to convey emotions by using sparing sculptural gestures. In short, expressing the immaterial through material means.
