Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy: The Art of Dinosaur Designs is an exhibition from artists Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy, featuring a series of more than 40 large-scale sculptural forms that celebrate the pair’s thirty year creative partnership.
This exhibition will delight and astound with its colourful fusion of art, design and fashion, referencing Olsen and Ormandy’s iconic design label Dinosaur Designs and exploring in a gallery context the artful and aesthetic prevalent throughout their work. Be the first to see exciting new artworks developed specifically for this exhibition.
A highlight of the show is an iconic set of life-sized totems in the artists’ signature resin. Originally developed for London Design Week 2016, the collection includes two new totems created specifically for the Hazelhurst exhibition.
New additions to the exhibition include pieces with thousands of hand-made and hand-cast beads, which have been threaded and layered upon each other to form a sculpture. The pieces capture the essence of Dinosaur Designs, exploring the relationship between art and design, with beautiful textures and forms resulting from the use of polished and matt beads.
