'This September Sun' in Art

This September Sun (Catherine Phillips)

'Nothing is Certain' is an exhibition of twelve experimental abstract paintings by Catherine Phillips based on book titles. The exhibition, which is part of a wider project celebrating books and libraries, is at Putney Library, Disraeli Road, in London until 27th April 2018.

One of the paintings is inspired by Bryony Rheam's novel This September Sun, which is published by amaBooks in Zimbabwe, by Parthian Books in the United Kingdom, by Longhorn in Kenya and, soon, by Al Arabi in Arabic.

The Zimbabwean cover of the book is based on a painting by the Zimbabwean artist Jeanette Johnstone.

The books celebrated in the exhibition are:

Designing with Natural Forms by Natalie d’Arbeloff
Good Morning, Midnight by Jean Rhys
Rhapsody in Green by Charlotte Mendelsohn
Spirals in Time by Helen Scales
Sunquakes by J. B. Zirker
The Blazing World by Siri Hustvedt

The Sea, The Sea by Iris Murdoch
The Sound of Things Falling  by Juan Gabriel Vásquez
The Sun & Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
This September Sun by Bryony Rheam
