THE ART OF CRAFT is Matthew Chambers' solo show at Hexagon Classic Design. Matthew's sculpture has evolved during the course of his career: simplicity of form has developed over time into something more complex in pattern, where internal layers have multiplied, become tighter and generally enclosed inside each piece. “This show is about breaking this focus, paring back the pattern and going back to my roots,” explains Chambers. “I’m once again drawing on my base inspiration – a love of Barbara Hepworth’s work and the simple and organic forms that helped trigger my creative process. I find myself exploring the idea of less is more and looking at ways that a certain simplicity in form can create its own special harmony.”
Matthew has gained international recognition and won a number of awards. His work has been acquired by many museums and discerning collectors. He has recently been selected for the “Best of Europe” section of the Homo Faber event in Venice. A celebration of the finest European craftsmanship organised by the Michelangelo Foundation.
Racheline Michaels is delighted to invite you to a stunning exhibition of work inspired by the St Ives School. Matthew Chambers’ sculptural work will be exhibited alongside paintings by Peter Seal and John Goodison
