Sara Ferrington & Dan Kershaw

Artwork: Devil’s Den in the Children’s Room

Sara Ferrington is a painter and textile artist and Dan Kershaw is a sculptor and designer. They collaborated on this original functional sculpture that is both an artwork and a play space for children. The Devil’s Den is made from poly pipe, canvas, textiles, hand painted and sewn fabric and suspended slightly from the ceiling.

This was a unique project for Sara and Dan which worked beautifully. They were inspired by their children who willingly helped create and test prototypes in their back yard; offering suggesting and advice along the way. In this work the artists were wanting to leave room for undefined play and create the ultimate cubby house for visiting children of all ages.

Sara and Dan accomplished this and recently undertook a residency at the Wilderness Gallery to prepare for an exciting new exhibition in 2018.
