Sir Peter Blake’s show, Sculpture, which opened last week at the London Institute Gallery features a catalogue by Webb & Webb. For the exhibition, Blake is showing his own sculpture alongside favourite ‘found’ objects and 3D work by invited guests including Mark Wallinger, Angus Fairhurst, Bill Woodrow and Bill Turnbull. ‘The catalogue jacket is printed letterpress from an assorted set of upside down exclamation marks,’ explains Webb & Webb director Brian Webb, who helped curate the show. Sculpture also includes the work of London Institute students invited by Blake to submit entries for selection. The show runs until 19 December in London’s Davies Street. Blake’s work extends across a diverse range of media including watercolour, drawings, prints, collage, to painting and sculpture.
