ART and design duo Denman & Gould, who are based at the old chapel at Haydon near Sherborne, have an exhibition in Frome, on show until Sunday 3rd September.
Other Place, at Kobi & Teal on Frome’s steep, historic Catherine Street, is a series of pieces exploring the idea of Shelter and its place in the surrounding landscape.
This multi-disciplinary exhibition brings together model making, textile design, print and collage, creating a rich and varied body of work that is sure to captivate.
Embodying the essence of home, furniture designer-maker Russell Denman has hand crafted a series of sculptural models that are designed to protect and house through a medium reminiscent of architectural model making.
The Shelter works show meticulous attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship. These sculptural forms are a true testament to the hand crafted.
Multi-talented textile artist and print-maker Eleanor Goulding large geometric embroideries form a backdrop to the Shelters depicting hand-stitched meditations on landscape and form. These modern embroideries are meditative statements about time, each meticulously hand stitched using block coleur with simple and subtle tone combinations.
With a focus on slow, thoughtful design, and a strong interest in natural materials, Eleanor and Russell describe their practice as “rooted in the considered and the hand made.”
At their multi-disciplinary studio they create individual pieces of crafted objects, furniture, textile design and artwork, selling and exhibiting their work throughout the UK.
Other Place is Denman & Gould’s debut collaborative exhibition in Somerset. It will be open from 10am to 4.30pm, Wednesday to Saturday and Sundays 6th August, and 3rd September.
