Matthew Darbyshire at The Art Block

Matthew Darbyshire’s work for The Art Block features three figurative works for Selfridges that play with, subvert and interrogate familiar classical symbols. Observing that many worldwide brands’ names derive from classical deities, Darbyshire has reinterpreted the traditional statuary of NikeHermes and Mars, mimicking the layering method typically seen in digital printing but using traditional crafting processes.

Please note: towards the end of March we will have a new art commission installed at The Art Block - come back soon to see!

The Art Block and our partnership with Yorkshire Sculpture Park

This installation marks the second in a series of collaborations curated in partnership with Helen Pheby, Senior Curator at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Every six months, we display a new work at The Art Block – from new commissions to pieces borrowed from YSP’s collection.
