Exhibit: Cognitive Distance–The Bookworks and Thoughtforms of Timothy Ely

October 26, 2022 - January 12, 2023

Compelling, contemplative, and visionary: these are words that have been used to describe the work of artist and bookbinder Timothy C. Ely. Showcasing approximately forty manuscript books, drawings and prints created by Ely over the past fifty years, Cognitive Distance: the Bookworks and Thoughtforms of Timothy C. Ely introduces gallery visitors to Ely’s extraordinary version of world-building. Drawing from traditional fine binding, printmaking, and manuscript books, Timothy C. Ely has developed his own hybrid ways of creating work, all the while remaining true to his artistic vision. The techniques and materials of fine bookbinding are immediately apparent in his work; by pushing these traditional aspects in new directions, the resulting works inspire and astonish.
