Miriam Stannage: Time Framed provides analysis on this important contemporary artist’s work, exploring her use of words and symbols, and the concept of vision in all of its senses.
This survey presents Stannage’s works, many of which have not been seen publicly, and documents the media she has worked in, specifically installation, photography, painting, video, prints and drawings, and artist’s books.
This book accompanies the exhibition Miriam Stannage: Survey 2006-2016 held at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.

Miriam Stannage (b. 1939) is a relentless innovator. Her practice is founded upon a deep intellectual engagement with, and curiosity about, the challenges and nature of contemporary life. For the last fifty years, she has produced a dazzling range of works that resist easy categorisation.
Stannage continues to celebrate the strange and beautiful in our everyday, working across the genres of installation, photography, painting, video, prints and drawings, and artist?s books.
