A recent print of IanWhittlesea is part of the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London
A small print, The sun is but a morning star (For Henry David Thoreau), is hung in the print room of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. The image is derived from the title page of the first edition of Walden. The original woodcut was based on a drawing by Thoreau's sister Sophia and has been redrawn and printed over a black background to suggest that a light burns within Thoreau's cabin.
Ian Whittlesea is one of the artists in the first exhibition of PayneShurvell, a new London gallery
A Bright and Guilty Place
16 June – 24 July 2010
curated by Dermot O'Brien and James Payne
Thirteen artists interpret the notion of mapping and 'place'. The title of the exhibition, A Bright and Guilty Place, is taken from Orson Welles' Lady of Shanghai in which the classic hall of mirrors climax sequence intertwines the virtual and the actual.
