Twelve Gatefolds

13th February 2021

Twelve Gatefolds is a booklet by Joe Devlin. A page of 12 regional gate patterns, originally encountered in a library, was the starting point — each pattern then reduced to geometric shapes by the act of folding.

An A6 concertina booklet consisting of b&w images on 170 gsm recycled paper, Twelve Gatefolds is limited to 100 copies, and can be purchased here. It follows on from Joe’s previous Gatefolds, worked in metal and exhibited at Studio 2, Todmorden in 2019. Read Leeds City Art Gallery Curator Nigel Walsh’s commentary on those here.
