Elements: The Beauty of Imperfection

2-13 September 2017, Bamford Barn, Daylesford, Gloucestershire
16-13 September 2017, 169 Draycott Ave, South Kensington, London SW3 3AJ

The curated exhibition will bring together a group of highly skilled and innovative designers and artists that respond to elements of nature, through process, material and philosophy. In today’s world of high technology, craft has a distinct and powerful role to play in culture and feels more in tune with contemporary art philosophies now, more than ever. It is an essential need to re-connect with the elements in nature where natural harmonies and the beauty of imperfection are conceptualised through traditional processes of hand-crafting with organic and recyclable materials such as clay, wood, glass and natural fibres. 

Featuring works by: Christian Burchard (USA), Ernst Gamperl (Germany), Akiko Hirai (UK), Marlène Huissoud (UK), Eleanor Lakelin (UK), Pascal Oudet (France), Michael Peterson (USA), Marc Ricourt (France), Wycliffe Stutchbury (UK), Nic Webb (UK).

James Lumsden - Reflex

James Lumsden - Reflex

James Lumsden’s new series ‘Reflex’ is comprised of paintings that emerge from baroque curves of light and colour, which palpitate with energetic life. […] The artist comments that ‘the transparency and the fluidity of the marks can give a sense of something caught in motion – an act of movement fixed’. Certainly, there is something positively animate about Lumsden’s work; the films of paint tell a story of paradoxically constant metamorphosis, of conflict and change that perhaps equates to our own ontology and to our relationship with others.

Peter Marigold’s latest series Bleed is a collection of cedar wood cabinets that incorporate a form of ‘localised ebonising’.  Although the forms are simplistic blocks, the steel hardware, stripped of its protective zinc coating using acid, reacts with the tannin in the cedar. This produces bleeding patterns on the wood that in turn emphasise the actual complexity of the organic material.

Maisie Broadhead - Broadhead’s Women

  • Sarah Myerscough Gallery (map)

This collection of new works includes a series of photographs entitled Broadhead’s Women; a collection of studies portraying three generations of women from the artist’s immediate family. Broadhead’s Women reinterprets the recognisable compositional styles of two historical painters – Johannes Vermeer and Vilhelm Hammershøi – and highlights their similar obsession of repeating the narrative of women situated within quiet domestic interiors. By using the visual format of these iconic artists, while making subtle changes, Broadhead offers intimate and timeless portraits of femininity.
