We are delighted to present our summer exhibition Push & Pull, featuring new work from the artist Will Cruickshank.

About

Push & Pull comprises large sculptural works in wood, plaster and thread, alongside a series of woven hangings.

Cruickshank’s work experiments with form and materials, and processes of invention and making. Push & Pull  alludes to the relationship between material, machine and maker. This push and pull reflects a process grounded in discovering by doing, by making, and in ideas of thinking through making. 

The artist’s studio, located in Essex, is in three converted grain silos where he develops his own machinery, materials and production procedures. He has made improvised lathes, makeshift weaving machines, printing presses, and developed water-carving processes to make artwork from timber, concrete, plaster, wool, thread and paint.

Through this making process his work explores the boundaries between sculpture, craft and design. Push & Pull is supported by the Henry Moore Foundation and Knauf.
