Today I had a glorious day at Yorkshire Sculpture Park! If you haven’t visited before, it’s a stunning 500 acre park in the rolling Yorkshire countryside filled with outdoor sculptures from numerous artists, and also indoor exhibitions dedicated to artists working in all kinds of mediums. I’ve been a few times, and it’s always such a fab day out (and it’s free, which is always a bonus!)
The exhibition at the moment is by Rob Ryan. I have seen his works before, but hadn’t put a face or story to the name until today. I absolutely love his whimsical, intricate, laser-cut designs, which are accompanied with gorgeous quotes relating to Rob’s life, and that are so relatable.
I cannot even fathom the time and effort that goes into creating such intricate detail with such delicate materials! And the whimsical figures and designs are so up my street, I think he might be a new favourite!
It took some very real willpower not to invest in a piece, but I rewarded my self-restraint by purchasing plenty of merchandise in the gift shop!!
