Frederik Molenschot presents debut solo sculpture show at Carpenters Workshop Gallery

Marking the Dutch artist’s first solo exhibition, Atlas 2000 features hand-sculpted works that are directly influenced by natural landscapes. The show’s title refers to the visual diary the artist has created since his studies at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2000.

Molenschot also designed Gingerblimp, a bulbous bronze LED light sculpture characterised by a silver patina and a goldbrushed interior. The artist explained that the sculpture is a playful take on ginger root from the natural world and also nods to the manmade blimps that form part of New York
City’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Recycled oak railway sleepers were salvaged to create a chunky dining table and chair which were named “Bridge Beat” paying homage to the captivating structure of bridges.

Also part of this series is a black bronze desk and chairs formed from gridded lines arranged in triangular formations. Every piece is hand-sculpted his studio. According to Molenschot, the pieces’ forms vary as much as their material palettes.
