Rob Ryan @ Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Normally I don't really need much of an excuse to get down to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, but this month there's an extra special reason to go.

"Artist Rob Ryan will be transforming the Visitor Centre at Yorkshire Sculpture Park this winter as his imaginative paper cuts and screen prints go on display from 11 November.

Famed for his detailed hand-cutting of delicate papers into intricate patterns, often revealing whimsical stories or poetic phrases, Ryan will be decorating the four metre-long shop window at YSP with a huge paper cut panel. Framed one-off paper cuts and limited edition screen prints, exclusive to YSP, will be on display throughout the Centre.

Decorated vinyl panels by Ryan will also adorn the windows in the Visitor Centre, and a brochure designed by the artist featuring all the work on display will accompany the exhibition. A range of items will be available in the YSP Shop, including an exclusive laser cut Christmas card."
