Walter Van Straaten is a Herefordshire based artist by adoption, who has always been attracted by the beauty of the country’s ancient woodlands. Looking for a way to bring out the beauty of the wood itself, he settled on the idea of blending it with a strongly contrasting material – polished stainless steel – so that each element draws something from the other. Two elements as one. Does it work?
We would love your views on that.
Canwood Gallery (CG) is delighted to be launching for H.Art on Saturday 10th September 2016 with an exceptional mixture of internationally-renowned and local artists.
