FRAGMENTS

Thursday, 29 December 2016



Recently, The Future Perfect debuted Fragments, a new creative collaboration between Calico Wallpaper and Lex Pott. Fragments are beautiful, minimal commissioned stone work pieces and shall be showcased at The Perfect Future Showroom in New York this January along with other pieces by Lex Pott.


Pott's Inspiration for the Fragment's collection came from the way rocks at a quarry fracture and break. By preserving the rough rocks in their brutal raw form, and then fusing them with the complete opposite, highly polished glass surfaces, the finished pieces are left in between design and art.

LIQUID ALUMINIUM

Tuesday, 27 December 2016



Today i'd like to share with you a newly discovered designer and my personal favorite piece he recently debuted - French designer Mathieu Lehanneur whom debuted his individual exhibition titled 'Spring' at Carpenters workshop gallery during the London design festival. In his new exhibition Lehanneur takes the idea of visually erasing the line between solid, liquid and gases. He took these ideas and applied them to furniture, creating some stunning minimalistc tables.

His work is created by using 3D special effects software created for the film industry. Each piece is made using marble and aluminium, that produces a wave/ripple effect appearing as if it has frozen in time. 











































































‘a piece becomes beautiful when we do not need to question the innovation. I also like to say that they are the works of their time and that they could not have been created before today, due to the technologies or of the available processes.’ - Mathieu Lehanneur

HOW TO / PREPARE FOR AN ART SHOW

Tuesday, 16 August 2016





/ The Space - Timing 
Make sure you turn up early to the exhibition space/gallery beforehand - It's important to check out the space you'll be exhibiting in; This way you can get a real feel for the gallery and choose a good hanging space for your work. Walk around the gallery and try to imagine where certain pieces should hang and afterwards, take a step back to ensure all your pieces are straight and  in line.


/ Photograph Your Works

Photograph your work once it's hung up - These photographs will be great for sharing on social media and adding to your portfolio. (Also remember once it's sold, you'll never get a chance to see it again.) 

 / Frame Work

Most places require framed art to already be wired at the back. It's important that this is done before the show. Before this however, get good frames for your work - (Stay away from cheap frames.) 

/Packaging The Works

When shipping or taking your artwork to the show, it's crucial you package your work well. I like to use lots of bubble wrap when transporting my works from place to place. If you're shipping your work, it make be wise to place your work in a wooden crate along with bubble wrap to ensure nothing breaks. 

/ Labeling

Create labels to go alongside the works. Include - Title, Size, Medium, Price, and Your name.

/ Business Cards

Business cards are always handy to have when taking part in an exhibition - Leave them out by your artwork and/or leave some at the gallery for visitors to take home to ensure your details are remembered. 

/ About The Artist

If you're a smaller artist you may want to create a label with a small artist statement to place next to your work so visitors get an idea of who you are as an artist and what you work is about.
