New Truth to Materials: Wood
8th September 2017 - 1st January 2018
The show features an eclectic and diverse selection of both contemporary and traditional artists and craftspeople (including Sebastian Cox, David Jones, Graham Sutherland and David Nash) and looks at how their work can manipulate, subvert or reinforce our emotional responses to this most versatile of natural materials. The term ‘truth to materials’ is familiar to the arts and crafts world: post-industrial revolution craftsmen were keen to preserve the integrity of the materials they used by preserving and emphasising their original qualities. New Truth To Materials: Wood is the first in a series of exhibition at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft that takes a fresh look at this tenet and explores how both traditional and contemporary artists and craftspeople either challenge or adhere to it.
