Matthew Darbyshire: Oak Effect

Artist Matthew Darbyshire talks to us in his studio about creating Oak Effect. This major new installation at The Shipley Art Gallery (25th January - 17th May 2014) by one of Britain's most exciting artists Matthew Darbyshire consists of a huge variety of wooden objects arranged in a home interior, itself constructed wholly from oak veneer. The objects were chosen by Matthew Darbyshire from the venues and stored collections managed by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums including those of the Natural History Society of Northumbria. Oak Effect explores a world of collisions between objects, styles and eras and creates an unsettling tension between the authentic and artificial. The installation was displayed at Bloomberg Space, London in April 2013 and is a collaboration between Bloomberg SPACE, Tramway Glasgow and Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums.
