Deirdre Dyson stages a one-off exhibition For London Design Festival 2016
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.
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.
