Carpenters Workshop Gallery is pleased to announce ‘Aspects’: its upcoming exhibition with Australian designer Charles Trevelyan, running from 16 March to 5 May at the gallery’s London space.

For close to 10 years, Charles Trevelyan and Carpenters Workshop Gallery have worked together, rst exhibiting the designer’s work in 2008. In this exhibition, the designer will be showing the full range of his oeuvre, from his Stance pieces to his Tripartite series.

Charles Trevelyan works closely with the gallery, particularly on the nishing of his pieces. At the gallery’s Roissy research and development centre, just outside of Paris, a team of artisans use a time-intensive, skilful technique known as patination in which they paint chemicals onto the surface of the bronze and quickly apply strong heat using a blowtorch.

Variants of the chemical combination and the heat applied can completely change the appearance of the bronze. As a result, Charles Trevelyan’s works show the full range of possibilities of this process with their spectrum of colours and textures.
