Charles Burnand Gallery will debut at Design Miami/, for the fair’s 19th edition, unveiling an exhibition entitled, ‘Telluric Matter.’ The works of artists present focus on raw, honest materials that have been manipulated in unexpected ways. Founder Simon Stewart has curated ‘Telluric Matter’ as an appreciation of materials that come from the earth. The artists featured have mastered the use of raw materials, celebrating mediums such as reclaimed mahogany, plaster, limestone, mica and glass to create exaggerated forms. The exhibition is a representation of how extra-terrestrial concepts with imagined and exaggerated forms can be achieved through terrestrial means and practices used for ancient craft. During Design Miami/, works will be presented by: Dawn Bendick, Steve Clark of DenHolm, Fredrik Nielsen, Jean-Gabriel Neukomm and Reynold Rodriguez.
“My focus through Charles Burnand Gallery has always been rooted in the desire to work with artists who share my passion for honest, noble and sustainable materials,” says Stewart on this exhibition. “For this first year showing at Design Miami/, it was important that this ethos of the gallery was prominent through all works on display.”
