2016, Exhibition at Blackwell the Arts and Crafts House

Solo Exhibition | Christian Barnes

‘A Bathymetric Atlas of the English Lake District’
Blackwell Arts and Crafts House, Bowness on Windermere.
10-17 September 2016.

The first showing of this work in Cumbria. I was nominated for Cumbria Life’s ‘Visual Artist of the Year’ in 2015 for this work. ‘A Bathymetric Atlas of The English Lake District’, is a unique hand-made book measuring 120 x 120 cm. Commissioned by Locus+, it contains a three dimensional model of the underwater landscape of the principal lakes in the English Lake District at a scale of 1:41250. The work will be shown in the Oliver Thompson Gallery and there will be three page turnings a day at 11.30, 13.30, 15.30. If you would like to be involved in the page turnings please contact me.

A Bathymetric Atlas of The English Lake District was folded, cut and assembled by hand at Book Works Studio using template drawings produced by Price & Myers, London.
