An ambitious, bold and vibrant exhibition from printmaker Mark Hearld, exploring new connections through collaboration and risk taking.
Working from his studio in York, Hearld works tirelessly to create fresh works but equally values the joy and inspiration which comes from collaboration with like-minded makers and organisations. This show is a celebration of all these things.
Alongside a number of special collaborations, Hearld will create 60-70 new works, which include collages, lino cut prints, screen prints, letter press prints, and a large scale mural.
The mural will comprise of a series of A1 sized individual one-off collages, each sitting as a solo piece, but when placed together, make an incredible one-off work which will fill the walls of the visitor centre restaurant.
An exclusive, limited edition range of products are being developed for this show including a collection of stunning wall hangings, woven jacquard tapestries and ceramic tankards decorated by Hearld, and created in collaboration with the potteries at Stoke-On-Trent.
A publication by Random Spectacular is planned to coincide with this show, documenting Hearld’s creative journey through 2021, including the process and collaborative approach Hearld goes through to produce the new body of work for Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
