Carpenters Workshop Gallery is delighted to present a temporary exhibition at the new gallery space of Patricia Low Contemporary, in Gstaad, Switzerland.
In collaboration with Low, Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents a show of the gallery’s most established artists, to introduce the pinnacle of contemporary collectible design to the Gstaad community. A common aesthetic and shared interest in exquisite craftsmanship unite the visions of the two galleries, as the exhibition integrates a new collecting dimension to the local art scene.
Carpenters Workshop Gallery is dedicated to blurring the divisions between art and design and invites visitors to discover leading artist designers, including Ingrid Donat, Nacho Carbonell, Wendell Castle, DRIFT, Andrea Branzi, Vincent
Dubourg, Roger Herman, Vladimir Kagan, Atelier Van Lieshout, Frederik Molenschot, Rick Owens, Giacomo Ravagli and Charles Trevelyan.
Selected works are sympathetic to Gstaad’s unruly natural environment. The spires of Wendell Castle’s Long Afternoon mirror the surrounding Alpine peaks, with their slopes reflected in the brilliance of Charles Trevelyan’s Fuse II marble table. Rick Owens’ Stag Chair, as well as Andrea Branzi’s subtle Tree 6B recall the region’s natural flora and fauna in their material choices. The severity of the Alps is balanced, however, by the warmth of breakout artist Nacho Carbonell’s signature Cocoon Lamps and the effervescence of DRIFT’s Fragile Future light sculptures, which incorporate delicate dandelion seeds. The exhibition is presented alongside artists from Patricia Low Contemporary.
