Monster Chetywnd @ Sadie Coles

8 December 2022 - 12 January 2023

Monster Chetwynd presents The Cat’s Whiskers, a group of four hand blown glass sculptures, shown alongside a series of recent watercolours.

Made in 2022, each of the four glass dioramas draw inspiration from the local history and setting of Durham Cathedral, reimagining episodes from the lives of two legendary Northumbrian saints whose tombs are located at the Galilee Chapel. The works depict stories from the life of Venerable Bede and St. Cuthbert, as described in Bede’s writings. Composed in luminous, brightly coloured glasses, the works dramatically re-envisage the miraculous episodes through a series of dreamlike and near-psychedelic vignettes.
