HOLLY HENDRY : THE DUMP IS FULL OF IMAGES
Sep 21, 2019 - Apr 19, 2020
Hendry’s practice often focuses on themes of decay, the body, material use and re-use, and she has incorporated these ideas with her fascination with the imitation of life to create her first kinetic sculpture alongside other new work for this exhibition.

MELVYN EVANS : IMPRINTING THE LAND
Nov 16, 2019 - Feb 23, 2020 FINAL WEEK
Widely exhibited throughout the UK, including at the Royal Academy, the Royal College of Art and Somerset House, the Kent-based artist initially trained as a marine engineer spending time working on submarines, before becoming a professional artist in 1992. Since this time, Evans has developed a signature style of strong, bold imagery, with inspiration coming from artists such as Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious, Henry Moore and the St Ives School. His work is informed by the British coastline, its landscape and working practices. Monuments, chalk figures, coastal paths, fishing boats, and Thames barges all play a part in the artist’s work, evoking a sense of place by recognisable landmarks and the use of a carefully considered colour palette.

SAAD QURESHI : SOMETHING ABOUT PARADISE
Jan 4 - Mar 15, 2020
In the nave of YSP’s 18th-century Chapel, three monumental organic forms rise from the ground, spread with landscapes, buildings and mysterious structures. A closer viewing reveals an eclectic mix of architectural styles, from traditional temples and churches to modernist houses and palaces, nestled among panoramas of forests, deserts and fantastical geological formations.

DILLAN MARSH AND ELEANOR CLARE
From 20 March 2019
The Poacher’s Lament & Other Half Heard Tales.
 
2018 visiting artists, Dillan Marsh and Eleanor Clare, return to YSP to showcase a project that explores the connections between real and imaginative spaces, inspired by the history of the Bretton Estate and traditions of folk tales and lullabies.
