8 Holland Street’s Bath gallery has officially launched with a curation of works from the artists, makers and designers that we have been championing since our inception, they are a true representation of 8 Holland Street’s aesthetic.


In our Bath Gallery from the 27 May - 10 June 2023 we will be showing Forest + Found's textiles and wooden sculpted vessels alongside Richard Cook impasto paintings of landscape. The exhibition will then travel to Kensington 15th June - 22nd July 2023. 


FOREST + FOUND is a Somerset based partnership between artists Abigail Booth and Max Bainbridge. Founded in early 2015, as a space for material research and cross disciplinary collaboration creating work that explores the dialogue between sculpture, painting and a new found language of craft. They exhibit their work in the UK and internationally.


RICHARD COOK is a British painter living and working in Newlyn, Cornwall. Initially, Cook was influenced by his teacher and mentor Leon Kossoff who he shared a studio for 3 years in the early 1970’s, Cook went on to develop his own voice and unique style inspired by the land and seascapes of Cornwall whilst sustaining the thick, impasto method with oil paint. Cook has been exhibiting for over twenty-five years and has received awards from the British Council and the Arts Council. In 2001 he was given a solo show at Tate St Ives, with a related publication, and a major painting was acquired for the collection in 2006.
