“Cedric Morris: Beyond the Garden Wall” was an exhibition hosted and curated by Philip Mould & Company to celebrate the wonderful landscape paintings of this extraordinary artist.
We were thrilled to be asked to help design the first exhibition inspired by Morris' passion of travel and nature and began with an imposing entrance cut-out of his landscape painting, Diana’s Peak, St Helena, 1964. Designed and installed to accentuate mountainous peaks full of colour, the eye-catching display also fulfilled the sense of curiosity running through Morris’ work.
The vibrant theme of nature continued inside with a teal stand-alone wall dividing the room to enhance the space before leading the viewer around this room and into the next. A video projection room tucked away to the right featured a hidden projector to focus exclusively on film.
A bust created by Frank Dobson was displayed on an asymmetrical plinth in the centre of another small room and lit in a dramatic style, accentuating Morris’ importance and particularity.
The design, build and install included gallery windows, display walling, display plinths, wall signage, hanging fabric banners, description labels, information wall text, short-throw projectors and fabric wall prints.
