Phil Ashcroft (TB-266) is exhibiting in Painter Maker with SIBLEYSPARLING at Henry Saywell. Exhibition Dates: 8-22 December 2017 Preview: Thursday 7 December 2017, 6-9pm Henry Saywell, 291 Lillie Road, Fulham, London SW6 7LL. T. 020 73811 774. Open Monday-Saturday, 10.00-17.30. http://www.henrysaywell.com/exhibition Henry Saywell presents Painter Maker, bringing together the paintings of Phil Ashcroft and makings of SIBLEYSPARLING.
Materials and process drive SIBLEYSPARLING’s design ethos, creating pieces that consist of clean lines and functionality interspersed with a splash of colour. Her inventiveness combining materials to see how they interact and the conversations that can be formed in colour, texture and form create her unique bespoke homeware pieces. For Painter Maker SIBLEYSPARLING will show work from her ‘Låda’ collection alongside a selection of new designs, including work from a collaboration with textile designer Sunny Todd.
Phil Ashcroft’s gestural, emotive paintings combine a flattened out 1980s style art deco and graffiti influences, with references to American abstraction which often threaten to overwhelm the upper sections of his canvases. For Painter Maker he presents new, and previously unseen, small and medium-scale works.
