Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler to present “Art for Living” exhibition

November 2017 – Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, renowned interior designers, will present an exhibition “Art for Living”, in association with Fred Mann and New Art Projects.

The exhibition will be held at the new Pimlico Road showrooms from Wednesday, 6th December to Thursday, 21st December, 2017.

“Increasingly our decorating and design commissions for private clients include modern pictures and objects,” says Philip Hooper, design director for Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler.

“Exhibiting such works away from the traditional monochrome gallery setting and into a location with a sense of residential scale and colour makes for a far more dynamic and engaging show,” he added.

“Works by the seven different artists will be hung throughout the space, giving a unique opportunity to create striking juxtapositions with our antique and contemporary furniture, ceramics and accessories. Allowing the viewer a greater insight into how such pieces can work within a home.”

The seven artists selected by Fred Mann, director of New Arts Projects, and Philip Hooper, include Fergus Hare, showing some of his landscapes of the south coast of England. Beautiful small paintings evoking twilight and paying homage to Samuel Palmer and the English landscape tradition.

Canadian artist Zachari Logan will show his delicate drawings of floral wreaths together with a monumental pastel work of an urn filled with wild flowers native to Canada.

Mat Humphrey will install some new elegant monochrome panels which reference the movement of light and sound through water.

Kadie Salmon, a young Scottish artist who creates delicate handcoloured photographs, will be showing pieces from her residency in Trondheim, and from her studio award at The Florence Trust.

James Crowther, a British painter specialising in touching portraits of his subjects, has had work exhibited in a number of major UK collections including the National Portrait Gallery.

Jack Milroy is represented by his signature acrylic boxes containing three-dimensional cutout work.

Hedley Roberts will exhibit one of his compelling and vibrant portraits that reference the way we portray ourselves on social media sites such as instagram.

“We decided to show these contemporary artists in a stylish and residential setting as we all live with visual art. The rooms at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler provide the ideal setting in which to enjoy it,” says Fred Mann.

Exhibition times: Monday – Friday 9.30am – 5.30pm; Saturday 10am – 3.30pm
