About the Book
SOLEFOLIO is an exciting retrospective as it allows for multiple associations to be made about this artist’s ideas and obsessions over time. Making the ordinary into extraordinary subject matter, this exhibition also proves that after a decade, Ann 'Sole Sister' Johnson still has so much to say about the world around us.
