New Work - Sculpture
Eric Bainbridge - Harmony Plus
The exhibition will present a new series of sculptures which the artist has been developing since 2018 and never before shown together. For this body of work, vases, glassware and ceramics have been acquired by Bainbridge from second-hand shops and markets of Northern Britain.
Fused together with pigmented fibreglass resin they form sculptural objects that hover between the absurd and the beautiful, continuing Bainbridge's interrogation of taste and value. Referencing Modernity and precedents such as Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Brancusi as well as Dada and Surrealist sculpture, these works sit in close conceptual relation to the artists early fur fabric sculpture and his more recent series of collages.
