Following the well received show at Flow gallery an enlarged version of 'Line Up' will be touring to Devon Guild where there is space for larger scale work and room sets.
Devon Guild, 16 January- 6 March 2016.
The exhibition explores the relationship between objects; how they combine and interact in styled groupings. Inspiration for the show derived from the collections at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, where curator Jim Ede pioneered art and craft in a domestic context. Pell will explore compositions of objects, creating beautiful still lives that could be displayed in any home. The work examines shape, pattern and texture within a monochrome palette. e shapes of the handmade objects are graphic and bold with expressive mark making. Pell has also painted canvases especially for the exhibition to act as a backdrop for her still life compositions. The artists selected by Pell are frequently featured in her editorial shoots and reflect her love of contemporary craft. They include a mixture of established designer makers alongside emerging new talents.
