Rob Ryan @ The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, July '15
I visited 'The Yorkshire Sculpture Park' the other day to see their latest Rob Ryan exhibition & it was so lovely! I've long been a fan of Mr Ryan's work since I was lucky enough to work on his first collaboration for womenswear for the Japanese collection at Paul Smith back when I first started out. His whimsical characters & way with words just captures the heart...so much so that one of the pieces on show 'Can we? Shall we?' became a reading at our wedding, all about phoning in sick & running away to the seaside together. It's that kind of sentimental escapism that I love so much about Rob Ryan's work, I'm not usually one for soppy stuff but when twinned with his beautifully intricate paper cuts & story-telling characters & patterning it gets me every time. YSP is a great day out regardless, but I'd thoroughly recommend a visit while the exhibition is on & there's some limited edition YSP collaboration pieces available in their brilliantly stocked shop as well as all prints being on sale if you fancy taking one home!
