We have specialised in three-dimensional artworks for a number of years and are consistently drawn to artworks created using unusual mediums or techniques. The ‘Ffound’ exhibition is an opportunity to present a selection of incredible works of art made from found objects and re-purposed materials from a handpicked group of artists, including some exciting new additions for 2015.
We always find it encouraging when we discover artists and designers who are able to incorporate or re-process the things many people see as ‘rubbish’ into amazing works of art. Re-use and re-cycle are actions that we are all familiar with and the ‘Ffound’ exhibition is a celebration of the artists who harvest discarded objects and materials, and their imagination when it comes to re-presenting them as thought-through and considered artworks.
In ‘Ffound’ 2015 we present artists working with used travel tickets, re-cycled cardboard packaging, drinks cans, pieces of machinery, sweet wrappers, bottle tops, vinyl records, screws, paintbrushes, crockery, and other general household trash.
Exhibiting artists include: Zac Freeman (USA), Keith Haynes (UK), Jud Turner (USA), Jack Tanner, George Ioannou (UK), Joanne Tinker (UK), Susila Bailey-Bond (UK), Paola Bazz (IT), David Hind (CAN), Finn Stone (UK), Weedon-Williams (UK), and Ann Robinson (FR)
In almost all cases the artworks chosen for this exhibition have taken months or even years to create, and the act of
collecting the materials has become an obsession for the artists. When speaking to many of the artists selected for the ‘Ffound’ exhibition one realises the focus and devotion that they each hold towards their work, the act of finding, processing and selecting the materials and objects that they use is often as satisfying and exciting to them as completing the work itself.
