Emily Allchurch and Laura Noble

April 14th, 2011

Visited the Diemar / Noble Gallery last night to see Emily Allchurch talking about her work Tokyo Story with Laura Noble. Emily has recreated a series of prints made by the 19th century Japanese artist Hiroshige for the collection One Hundred Famous Views of Edo.

As usual, you can find out everything you need to know about the project by the application of a little Google so I won’t go into it here.

I recommend a visit to the gallery before 7th May to have a look at the pictures for yourself. They’re worth it. I enjoyed the thoughtful, playful nature of the work and hearing Emily talk eloquently about the project was a rare bonus.
