Poems, Prayers and Promises is a limited edition artist book by Minna Gilligan presenting a selection of poems paired with new painterly collages.
Minna Gilligan is an artist based in Melbourne. She works primarily with painting, drawing and collage. Her practice speaks of fleeting, personal encounters with the past and present, and manifests in a tumultuous reconciliation of both. Her works are psychedelic playgrounds of colour, often inhabited by lone protagonists trapped in states of longing, sadness or exhalation. Minna has a strong sense of self and personal identity which she documents thoroughly on social media using imagery and writing. As a conglomeration of this – she will be publishing her first book in September of 2015, titled Time After Time.
Poems, Prayers and Promises is part of a series of new NGV commissions for the Melbourne Art Book Fair.
