Industry Gallery will be launching its Fall 2011 design season with the first U.S. solo exhibition of work by innovative British artist and designer, Tom Price. Specializing in modern furniture products, sculpture and lighting design, process plays a key role in Price’s work which has been bought by international museums, galleries and private collectors. Much of Price’s work is made using unconventional materials. In fact, he often finds it necessary to invent new tools and techniques in order to get the required results from certain fabrications. But Price sees this as an intrinsic part of the overall design and narrative.
“I like to think of myself as working in collaboration with materials, processes and phenomena and that the final physical outcome is a product of mutual consent.”
About Tom Price
A London native, Price attended several renowned schools including the Royal College of Art. That background in Fine Art informs his approach to design, which is typically very sculptural in both appearance and concept. The vast majority of Tom Price’s furniture and collections are anything but conventional. Represented in collections around the world, recently two of Price’s pieces were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco.
