Dartington Moon Bird, 2021

A bird, high up in a tree, blends with the tone of the foliage, against a moonlit sky. Silver ink mixed with prussian and violet blues emulate a range of early evening and twilight atmospheres.

We are delighted to soon be selling this incredible limited edition print from @tomhammick1 which was created during his residency at Dartington this summer. Profits from the sales of this print will contribute to the ongoing Arts Programme at Dartington Trust.

There will only be 100 variable woodcuts, 91 x 60cm and will cost £480.

These will be going on display in the Welcome Centre in next couple of weeks! To reserve a print or find out more please email hello@shops.dartington.org

Tom Hammick is known for using landscape as a metaphor to explore an “imaginary and mythological dreamscape.” Drawing from a wide range of sources, from Japanese woodblock prints to Northern European Romantic painting and contemporary cinema, Hammick’s depictions of isolated human dwellings grounded in uncanny dream-like settings summon the uneasy atmosphere of a psychologically-charged thriller, or a dystopian suburban nightmare.

The fourth and final week of Summer School (14-20 Aug) will be focussed purely on Festival concerts, and takes an experimental / collaborative turn as we welcome a host of innovative artists to the Great Hall. For the first time this year, we are welcoming the public back inside to enjoy the music, so be sure to browse the programme today and book your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
