Launch of a book

Marking the exhibition is a beautifully designed and produced 52 page soft cover book with dust jacket and approximately 70 colour plates carefully selected to represent the handmade print works of Leon Pericles over his life as an artist. The brief biographical text contributed by Moira Pericles provides a warm account of the artist¹s life looking at the events and circumstances which spawned the body of work. The foreword by renowned Widjimorphup art critic Hugh J¹Eegeau adds an insight into Leons work in a style befitting the artists¹ proclivity for satire and whimsy.
