‘Outside In’ presents exceptional works of crafted art and design by international artist-makers who define their practice through their ethical and emotional decisions to use organic, sustainable materials. These ancient materials – wood, willow and grasses – are reimagined for the contemporary world as the makers express their devotion, both political and personal, to the natural world. Sarah Myerscough conjures a vision of future interiors grounded in material choice and sustainability, and elevated by beauty, innovation and peerless execution. The palpable affiliation the artists have with their materials urges us to engage more deeply with the organic world around us. While we look to increasingly digital and urban futures, this exhibition speaks to our innate desire for connection to the wild world our ancestors rose from, and allows us, in whatever small way, to bring that little remembered, now seldom touched, Outside, In.
Established in 1998, Sarah Myerscough Gallery represents a distinguished group of contemporary craft and design artists, specialising in material-led processes with a focus on wood and natural materials. The gallery works in both public and private collections, maintains a full programme of exhibitions and participates in leading art fairs around the world, including PAD London, Masterpiece London, Design Miami/Basel, Design Miami, SALON Art + Design New York, and FOG Design + Art San Francisco.
