Victoria Reichelt, Sir John Sulman Prize Winner 2013
Victoria Reichelt talks more on her Sulman Prize winning painting 'After (books)'. With the invention of ebooks, audiobooks and the proliferation of online news and research, the way we receive information is fast changing. Modern-day libraries are as busy as ever these days but people are using the facilities in very different ways, and oddly, the quietest areas tend to be those where the books are. This painting is from a series that considers the changing roles of library spaces as they adjust to keep up with new technologies.
