Accompanying us on a Hole&Corner tour of Collect 2021...

Tamsin Blanchard, Hole&Corner, March 1, 2021

We are going to start at Sarah Myerscough Gallery, a kind of spiritual home and endless inspiration for Hole & Corner. As always, Myerscough is in tune with over-arching issues facing the planet and how makers are reflecting on the fragile relationship between humanity and nature. Broken Beauty is about celebrating imperfection and vulnerability, something we all need right now, when so much around us is broken and in need of repair. Artists featured include wood turner Max Brosi and his beautifully poetic pieces like My World Turned Upside Down (whose hasn’t been?). Other highlights include Fernando Laposse’s explorations in sisal, Kate MccGwire’s exquisite meditative pheasant feather work and Max Bainbridge/ Forest + Found’s Standing Jar made from ebonised pear wood and his Burnt Chestnut Crucible made from sweet chestnut.
