To celebrate our Shaped By Design season, British Land is delighted to present Craft and Contemporary Design, an exhibition of design focused pieces by a range of London based and international artists in association with Sarah Myerscough Gallery. Preserving traditional hand-crafting skills and formed through environmentally aware practices, each artwork and furniture item showcased is unique.
The curated exhibition brings together a group of internationally renowned and highly skilled craft and design artists, working with wood through innovative and creative practices. They investigate the relationship between function and form via traditional woodturning and furniture techniques as well as the application of new technologies, to create unique and limited edition elegant sculptural pieces. Craft is central to today’s contemporary art and design discourse. It acts as a medium that reconnects with nature through making processes and a strong understanding of material, emphasising the value of the handmade and the beauty of imperfections. T he contemporary works here on display are its strongest advocates.
Featuring works by: Christian Burchard (USA), Helen Carnac (UK), Eleanor Lakelin (UK), Ernst Gamperl (Germany), David Gates (UK), Zaha Hadid (UK), Peter Marigold (UK), Gareth Neal (UK), Jim Partridge (UK), Michael Peterson (USA), Marc Ricourt (France), Nic Webb (UK).
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).

SARAH MYERSCOUGH GALLERY is delighted to announce its exclusive representation of the collaborative sculpted oak vessels by architect Zaha Hadid and designer Gareth Neal, first exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum London as part of “The Wish List” during the London Design Festival 2014. The vessels will be shown at COLLECT 2015, alongside new works by Thomas Bohle, Friedemann Buehler, Christian Burchard, David Gates, Liam Flynn, Ernst Gamperl, Shelley James, Peter Marigold, Malcolm Martin and Gaynor Dowling, Pascal Oudet, Michael Peterson, Marc Ricourt and Nic Webb.
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.
The gallery will be participating again in the London Art Fair with new works by the artists: Maisie Broadhead, Alicia Dubnyckyj, Nicholas Jolly, James Lumsden, Andrew Mackenzie, Emily Moore, Jenny Pockley, Paul Riley, Andy Stewart and Wycliffe Stutchberry. The art fair will take place from the 21-25 January 2015 at the Business Centre on Upper Street, Islington, London.
arah Myerscough is pleased to present a group show featuring landscape paintings by gallery artists: Alicia Dubnyckyj, Andrew Mackenzie and Jenny Pockley. If you have missed their latest solo exhibitions at the gallery earlier this year, it is a great opportunity to discover their recent works.
Alicia Dubnyckyj returns with her highly complex abstract cityscape paintings, capturing the dynamism and speed of contemporary London, which is now firmly recognised as one of the leading cities in the world, substantiated in 2013 by being crowned the most popular tourist destination on earth. In particular, the artist’s new work reflects the post-Olympic optimism felt in the Capital, encapsulating this new mood in her highly coloured, panoramic views that celebrate London’s inspiring contemporary and historic architecture.
