Wee Find: Daniel Clarke at Forest London
Fan of mid-century modern? In London this month? Make a beeline to Forest London for their exhibition of new prints, paintings and textiles by artist Daniel Clarke.
The excellent Clerkenwell-based mid-century design and furniture store is hosting the Londoner’s latest work, with highlights including upholstered pieces of furniture in Clarke’s new printed fabric.
The exhibition is the result of a year-long body of research collated from Daniel’s drawing trips across Europe. By looking beyond the surface decoration of of urban architecture in cities such as Hamburg and Marseille, he’s created a series of modernist-inspired works where the lines and grids of architecture becomes pattern.
As Daniel explained, “The illustrations have a sense of familiarity, even though they hold no specific architectural point of reference. Modernist architecture connects the urban aesthetics of culturally-different place.”
Daniel Clarke at Forest London runs until 27 August, 2015.
