Zara Wood aka Woody: Mirror Mime

Upper Space and YSP Centre
11 Nov 2010–27 Feb 2011

Brighton-based illustrator Zara Wood aka Woody brings her enchanting characters and imagined world to Yorkshire Sculpture Park with Mirror Mime, a stunning exhibition featuring 20 new works and exclusive products. Taking inspiration from the estate’s design over 200 years ago as a private pleasure ground, infused with Renaissance imagery and 1920s style, Zara depicts a beguiling world where the boundaries blur between the imagined and the real.

Mirror Mime showcases original and limited edition framed works for sale, including intricate ink drawings and silkscreen prints. The Upper Space features 11 original works complemented by boxed dioramas, vintage china with platinum hand-painted designs and a collection of Little Treasures – vintage jewellery pieces such as lockets and pocket watches framing miniature wearable originals by the artist. Zara’s distinctive creations also adorn the shop and 20-metre concourse windows, welcoming visitors with imagined scenes designed exclusively for YSP as her creatures and characters appear to travel from distant lands to a decadent Gatsby-esque party.

The shop window features a forest scene with characters emerging from silver birch branches laden with Mirror Mime-inspired products. All these are available in the YSP Shop, including an exclusive limited edition print and Christmas card, letter-press cards, printed candles, block-foiled sketchbooks and tote bags featuring Zara’s inimitable designs.

With a background in Fine Art, Zara Wood aka Woody produces work for publishing and fashion clients in Europe and Australia. Her Star Gaze collection (2008) became the most successful artist range Topshop have ever launched. Zara also designs her own range of limited edition art products and regularly exhibits
