WAKEFIELD.- This winter, Yorkshire Sculpture Park presents the largest solo exhibition to date by artist, illustrator and printmaker Ed Kluz. Sheer Folly – Fanciful Buildings of Britain celebrates the eccentric, uncanny and overlooked follies, temples and towers that dot the British landscape. The exhibition runs at YSP, near Wakefield, from 11 November 2017 to 25 February 2018.

Featuring original paper collages, scraper boards and prints, the exhibition takes inspiration from fantastical and fanciful buildings across the UK, including the artist’s native North Yorkshire and YSP’s 500-acre, 18th-century parkland. A limited-edition print, exclusive to the Park, features the lost Belle Vista tower which once stood in the grounds of Bretton Hall, now home to YSP.

Kluz’s work explores contemporary perceptions of the past through the reimagining of historic landscapes, buildings and objects. The ideas of early Romanticism, the Picturesque movement and antiquarian representations of topography and architecture underpin his approach to image making.

Vibrant, meticulous and sometimes dark aspects of Kluz’s work reflect the many different characters and styles of British architecture over the last 500 years. In Sheer Folly – Fanciful Buildings of Britain , the artist depicts a varied collection of some of the most intriguing oddities, often hidden and forgotten, within the folly genre. Celebrated and familiar buildings also feature, including a series of six prints directly inspired by The Landmark Trust properties.

All works in Sheer Folly – Fanciful Buildings of Britain are available to buy, along with an exclusive range of merchandise for YSP Shop including a silk scarf, tote bag, mugs and side plate.

Kluz was born in 1980 and grew up in Swaledale, North Yorkshire. He studied fine art at the Winchester School of Art. His clients include the V&A, Faber & Faber, Folio Society, John Murray publishers, Little Toller Books and St Jude’s.

YSP has led successful exhibitions with some of the UK’s best-known artists and designers including Mark Hearld, Angie Lewin, Emily Sutton, Rob Ryan and Alice Pattullo. YSP Shop showcases original work by international artists and contemporary designers and makers.
