With Space in Mind and Gillian Ayres at Tremenherre Sculpture Gardens

29th Mar 2017

With Space in Mind, curated by Helen Waters and David Cleaton-Roberts, brings together the work of four sculptors whose work explores the interplay between the two dimensional and the three dimensional. Many artists use the process of printmaking to expand upon the forms and ideas that drive their sculptural work.
David Nash creates prints that directly reference his sculptural works which are predominantly made in wood. Whether manipulating saplings to grow into domes or charring and carving fallen trees, the natural forms of his work lend themselves to being replicated in pastel stencils.
Cornelia Parker’s series, 'One Day This Glass Will Break', explores the physical process involved in printmaking. In a similar vein to her sculptural work, she uses the process of photogravure to flatten physical objects into a two dimensional image.
Antony Gormley, known for casting his own body as a starting point for his sculptures, considers how our physical freedom and imaginative potential is conditioned by the built environment. His etchings depicting bound figures also embody this idea.
Michael Craig-Martin, who is also famous for his installations, often refers to his sculpture as 'drawings in space'. In two new print series, Craig-Martin depicts simple, everyday objects, such as a light bulb, headphones or a coffee cup.
New prints and sculptures by Gillian Ayres will also be exhibited. She has lived in Cornwall for the last thirty years and the Cornish landscape is intrinsic to her work. The titles of her woodcuts such as Rhodiola, Fiesole and Heligan draw on names of places, plants and famous gardens.
