Shawcross' sculptures often explore geometry, philosophy, physics and metaphysics, combining ambitious structural and mechanical montages, they can look rational and scientific but also sublime and beautiful.

Barbara Hepworth: Form and Theatre

Howard Hodgkin
23 May - 26 July 2015

Continuing our series of single-picture exhibitions by major painters. We are delighted to announce that Sir Howard Hodgkin CH, CBE will exhibit a large new painting in the Orangery this summer.


Laura Ford at Strawberry Hill
19 June - 6 November 2015

The Strawberry Hill Trust has invited Stephen Feeke, Director of Roche Court Sculpture Park, to curate their first exhibition of contemporary art in the grounds and house at Strawberry Hill. Laura Ford's work is particularly well-suited to the history and atmosphere of Strawberry Hill, its Gothic architecture and the sensibilities of its creator, Horace Walpole.

Inside the house, a number of works have been carefully selected to suit the different interiors including some of Ford's best known works. New works will include a specially-designed group of Waldegrave poodles based on Reynold's famous portrait of 'The Ladies Waldegrave' and Ford is also planning a Rapunzel-like figure leaning over the round tower.

After Strawberry Hill, the exhibition will be shown at Blackwell Arts and Crafts House, Cumbria, from 19 March - 4 September 2016.


GROUNDWORK

A group exhibition curated by Holly Willats (Art Licks) and Alma Zevi (Independent Curator). Presenting five early-career, UK-based artists who are responding to Land Art in new and surprising ways: Miriam Austin, Rob Chavasse, Freddy Dewe Mathews, Tom Lovelace, David Murphy.


Nathan Coley
3 October - 15 November 2015

We will host Nathan Coley's first exhibition at Roche Court which will comprise newly commissioned works for the gallery and the park, including sculpture and a text piece he is planning for the entrance to Roche Court. In his work, Coley explores a curiosity for the ways in which we relate to public spaces and architecture. He is also interested in what we believe.


Ceri Richards: Late Paintings
From 21 November 2015

The last paintings of Ceri Richards (1903-71) are large, colourful and compelling and explore the artist's major preoccupations with music, poetry and landscape. One of the most successful and important painters and print-makers of his generation, which included Moore, Hepworth and Nicholson, Richards was a prizewinner at the Venice Biennale in 1962. After his death, he was the subject of major retrospectives at Tate (1981) and at the National Museum of Wales (2002).
