Devon Sculpture Park’s new indoor exhibition space at The Sheds opened on Saturday 29th June with ‘Textures’, a mixed media show of resident artist Philip Letts latest works.
‘Textures’ is a layered combination of mixed media art that challenges us to reflect on ourselves, our environment and the issues that surround us.
Each piece is a theatrical, layered examination of modern challenges including climate change, urbanisation, commercialisation and waste. The art speaks for itself behaving as an emotional mirror for us to reflect on and in.
‘Textures’ is a series of resident artist Letts’ most recent works. The collection fuses sculpture with tones of rugged street art rubbing against metal, plastics, textile, bone and wood.
Each artwork behaves as a mini installation. Theatrical, performant, conceptual but always raw, challenging us to think about our impact on the environment and community surrounding us. Are we materialist and selfish? Or more open and caring. We can decide.
Philip Letts is a recognised international artist. He has been represented at most of the leading art fairs around the world and has had a number of solo exhibitions in major galleries in New York, London, Paris and Beirut. He is collected widely.
Philip is passionate about large, global projects that challenge convention and attempt to design groundbreaking solutions to social, environmental and market issues. He is also the founder of Devon Sculpture Park.
The Capability Brown gardens and main outdoor and indoor exhibitions are open from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am – 4pm. Adults £12, children (under 12) £6.
