Irresistible hand crafted lighting and illuminated artworks make a wonderful festive statement this season. We explore all facets of lighting where sculpture, colour and form meet.
Our intimate Balcony Gallery will be full to the rafters with beautiful pieces which can easily fit into home environments. We are careful to note the power of light as a medium in its own right, where light and shade create shadows and the colour and textures of shadow shifting with each piece create physically powerful works that take on the appearance of sculptural forms in space. Visitors are encouraged to move freely around the space to take the lighting pieces in from all angles.
Presenting pieces by: Clio Anastasiou, Nichola Bendall, Dobby and Rose, Liv Cornall, Adele Goulty, Denis di Luca, Lun Lighting, Hannah Nunn, Liz Scrine, Surrey Woodsmiths and Meryl Till.

Nichola Bendall is a mixed media artist and writer who creates poetical objects using old books, found text and images as a starting point for her work, which is thought provoking and strangely haunting, often reconnecting us with childhood iconography and memories.
Her narrative works turn literature into art and coerce familiar characters to emerge from the landscape of their own story, thus connecting threads of memory to the present time and contemporary values; creating new histories.
Books are now becoming works of art in their own right, and there is something fascinating about destroying and recreating in a different form (as has been done with the original element: the trees) - essentially retelling the same story in a different way, which gives it a new, magical and transporting power. When we read a story, it inhabits a mental shape, but in our increasingly visual world, people engage viscerally with the stories as a physical reality, and there is no longer a separation of the two.
