Richard Kindersley exhibits at our London Office
11 September - 3 October 2014

7- 9 William Road, London NW1 3ER

Monday to Friday: 8.30am - 6pm, entrance free

Richard Kindersley is a leading calligrapher and sculptor with commissions throughout the world. For his contribution to architectural lettering and inscriptions he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects as well as The Royal Society for Arts Award for Art in Architecture.


Commissions include a plaque within the newly redeveloped concourse at King's Cross Station, as well as work for St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, The Supreme Court in Parliament Square, The National Museum of Scotland, Exeter University, British Telecom, Sainsbury's, Lloyds Register of Shipping, Christies' Fine Art, British Bank of Hong Kong in Dubai, Liberty's of London, the National Gallery of Ireland, and The British Embassy in Algiers. One of Richard's most notable works is a group of 10 Standings Stones for the Pilgrims Way commissioned by BP International.  London exhibitions include The Mall Gallery, permanent installation in the V&A, Roche Court and The Cork Street Gallery. He has exhibited internationally in Copenhagen, Berlin, Rome and the USA. 


Examined through unexpected materials and techniques, this exhibition explores the process of reading and discovering the unseen letters of the alphabet by denying words their meaning and exploiting them as building blocks for patternmaking. In the normal process of reading, the eye passes automatically over text, drawing meaning accurately and quickly through the seemingly invisible letters, and yet the letter forms can give a special resonance to the text, imparting subtle flavour and colour without impairing the reading.
