11 December 2013 | Multidisciplinary artist Peter Nelson has just released a three volume set of limited edition artist books at Galley 9 in Sydney.

The book is composed of pages reproduced from Nelson's notebooks, which span the past four years. These pages were categorised and sorted into three subjects which comprise each volume -
The Picturesque, Chinese Painting and Urbanism. Together, they are personal and political documents that investigate a decoding of landscape.

Nelson works across drawing, painting, sculpture, video animation and prose, and often exhibits a variety of media in the same context. He has undertaken residencies at Red Gate Gallery in Beijing, Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris and has just returned home from a residency in Taipei Artist Village, Taipei. His work is held in the Artbank collection.

A selection of proofs from the book's pages are currently on display at Gallery 9 in Sydney's east. The book is also available for purchase from the gallery.

The first major text devoted to the work of Del Kathryn Barton has also been released.

This publication has been in the works for two years. It was initially scheduled to be released in conjunction with Barton's first exhibition with Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney in 2011. After revisions and expansions, it was launched at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery recently.

The book is written by Julie Ewington and published by Piper Press. It can be purchased on the Piper Press website. It is also available online and in store at Buratti Editions, a newly opened art concept store in Fremantle which operates in tandem with North Fremantle gallery Buratti Fine Art.
