Holmfirth Artweek 2022
Devour started as a multifarious project, a platform to "create & share the beautiful " delicious food of course is our anchor, but we also want Devour to be a fully immersive experience that celebrates all your senses, the lighting, music , interior design , the sound of river Holme & the scent of the wildflowers when they are in full bloom. So this year we’ve handed over our beautiful wood turning mill next door to Three Mixed-Media Installation artists for Holmfirth ArtWEEK 2022
Set in the beautiful Woodlands Mill, Storylines weaves together a large scale textile installation piece, striking metalwork sculpture and dramatic contemporary ceramics for sale and commission. A collection of ceramic and paper sculptures sitting alongside one another, linked together through a common storyline
Emily Stubbs - Ceramics
A collection of ceramic and paper sculptures sitting alongside one another, linked together through a common storyline.
Through my work I explore the playful relationship between form and line. Classic ceramic busts and paper sculptures explore and connect to each other through textures, colours and shapes, woven together to create an immersive storyline. Colour plays an important role in this work as it leads you through the narrative thread. Textures, patterns and shapes taken from wallpapers and clothing evoke feelings of nostalgia, whilst old typography with bold colour, strong line and intuitive mark-making, tells snippets of a story.
Victoria Robinson - Textile Installation
Using the teachings of psychotherapist Eric Berne and the development of his work into Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, Victoria Robinson’s installation examinations the obvious and the less obvious storylines that thread through our lives shaping how we see ourselves, how we behave and respond.
Repurposing elements of a past career Victoria’s installation asks “can we change our own stories and put down our own emotional baggage?”
Tristram Thirkell - Metalwork Sculpture
Tristram is a metal sculptor who is in awe of abstracts.
His most recent works have drawn inspiration from the ellipse of his early life.
He explores notions of isolation, tribalism and authority.
His work embraces geometry and architecture, found objects and neglected wonders.
