Editions and Objects at Yorkshire Sculpture Park


Guest blog post from Amanda Peach. Having worked with Simon and Angie Lewin of the design collective St Jude’s for several years it became apparent that we have similar attitudes, beliefs and passions towards artists, products and printed materials. It therefore seemed like a wonderful idea to bring both organisations together to look specifically at the editioning of objects and prints. Chloe Cheese, Roses 5 Past. Lithograph. Courtesy the artist, St Jude's and YSP The biggest task was selecting the artists to work with from the huge and extensive list of possibilities, but we managed to create the list that brings together 13 artists from across the UK, with each artist showing their works within YSP’s award winning visitor centre. All of the artists we chose to be represented are exhibiting with us due to relationships already forged; conversations held, emails exchanged; with either St Jude’s or YSP over the last few years, cementing working relationships for the future. We made our selection based on personal appreciation and admiration for the artists, quality of craftsmanship and choice of materials, with each artist bringing their own style to the show.

We are featuring printmakers of enormous reputation, including Angie Lewin, Christopher Brown, Peter Green OBE, Charles Shearer, Jonathan Ashworth, Mark Hearld, Emily Sutton, Melvyn Evans, Jonathan Gibbs and Chloe Cheese. Emily Sutton, September Dresser. Lithograph. Courtesy the artist, St Jude's and YSP The printed works are shown alongside three-dimensional objects and editions from jeweller, Katy Hackney; textile artist, Karen Mabon; and ceramicist, Terry Shone. Katy Hackney, whose practice is primarily material driven and influenced heavily by vintage toys and folk art, has created a series of 10 laser etched and hand coloured wooden pendants on red cord, each one is editioned on the reverse and comes housed in its own bespoke tin. Karen Mabon who established her successful brand in 2012 after graduating from the RCA, has designed two exclusive digitally printed scarves for the show; one in cashmere and the other in silk. Each one features Karen’s imaginative and slightly eccentric use of imagery, focusing on fun and allowing the wearer to express their individuality. Editions and Objects continues at Yorkshire Sculpture Park until 30 October 2016. Karen Mabon, Midnight Feast. Courtesy the artist, St Jude's and YSP
