Through The Glasshouse
Sam Wilde officially debuted his hand-painted ceramic collection Glasshouse at the Turner Contemporary Open in celebration of the gallery’s 10th anniversary.
On display from 23 October 2021 – 20 February 2022. Artworks span across mediums and include work by internationally renowned artists such as Tracey Emin, Rose Wylie and Margo Selby.
Utopia From Dystopia
The fourteen Glasshouse worlds were hand-painted by Sam Wilde and feature ornate brushwork coupled with vivid swathes of colour.
Each of the individual Glasshouse ceramics has their own story to tell, but together they chronicle a journey through a series of abandoned industrial and leisure spaces. Reimagining these locals in a world where pollutants and nuclear waste have become a permanent fixture of the environment. Having seeped into and mutated the flora that now overruns these worlds.
