It’s the last call to catch the beautifully sensitive duo show Balance and Form at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Pieces by Takahashi McGil – a woodworking husband and wife duo – sit perfectly alongside abstract prints by Emma Lawrenson in the YSP Centre.
Inspired by the rural Yorkshire landscape, Lawrence’s practice explores the formal processes and techniques of screen printing, in particular combining hand-drawn elements with subtle and balanced use of colour.
Following in the footsteps of artists such as Agnes Martin and the American Colour Field painters, Lawrences’ prints are beautifully minimal and abstract, perfectly complementing the woodwork pieces of Kaori Takahashi and Mark McGilvray.
Working from their studio in Devon, the husband and wife team collaborate on making decorative and functional homeware. Using ancient Japanese traditions and Western techniques, the pair make all pieces by hand.
Visitors to Balance and Form should also take a moment to check out the other YSP exhibitions and walk the stunning grounds with its permanent installations by some of the giants of twentieth-century sculptors..
