Fine art interpreted through the brush and the loom
From Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24 September 2016, Deirdre Dyson will hold a one-off exhibition of her fine art at the Deirdre Dyson Gallery 554 Kings Road, London SW6 2DZ.
Lady Dyson will curate a small selection of her artwork to hang alongside her carpet designs, bringing to life the concept of Walking on Art – depicting, through realized pieces, how she interprets her artistic vision through both paint-brush and loom.
This unique event is being staged as part of the 2016 London Design Festival and we are proud to be the Chelsea Design Quarter LDF District’s Design Hub for the week, providing complementary wifi to visitors.
Deirdre Dyson says:
“My passion has always been to explore form and colour and this is a key part of my approach to carpet design. I aim to create something that is more a work of art than simply a carpet. I recently wrote a book, entitled “Walking on Art”, which talks about the processes and techniques that go into creating my carpets and rugs. Through this exhibition, I hope to bring alive some of the content of the book – it’s very exciting.”
Visitors will be able to see paintings such as ‘Paper and Stone’ and ‘Pinched Vase and Grasses’, as well as other large-scale pieces of art. Deirdre Dyson’s latest collections of contemporary carpets will also be on display throughout the four-storey Gallery, completely transformed last year by architect Timothy Hatton. The roof terrace will be open for browsers to contemplate everything on display and relax a while before heading off to see the other design treasures our neighbours in the Chelsea Design Quarter have to offer.
