Works in progress at Karl Bielik’s Studio.

My studio practice is process driven… it usually involves a few different ways of approaching works and not just a variation on the same theme – this does happen in my work but not in a straight line… I’ll revisit themes/ideas that i felt worked months or years later.

Surprises do occur and chance/accident play a role in what I do… it’s just recognising and keeping the good bits… letting them breathe for a while to see if that initial excitement and what is happening stays or fades by the next day… I work on many pieces at once so I’ll just move on to another piece whilst the painting makes up its mind. I am in the studio daily and keep prodding the works along on their journey that has no particular destination in mind.

Pangolin Editions: Damien Hirst

"Founded in 1985, Pangolin Editions sculpture foundry casts and fabricates sculpture for many of the foremost sculptors of our time.

The wide range of work these artists have commissioned has given us an unrivalled opportunity to explore and develop the making of sculpture in all its diversity. By constantly questioning and researching both ancient and cutting-edge processes we have become world-renowned for our expertise in casting bronze, iron, aluminium and precious metals using lost wax, ceramic shell and sand-casting techniques, as well as our ground-breaking range of surface treatments, patinas and finishes."

Damien Hirst's "The Miraculous Journey".

"Three intense years in the making from maquette to site; the sculptures were enlarged, cast and constructed from over 500 bronze panels.

Weighing a staggering 216 tons altogether, the bronze panels were stitched together with an overall 19 kilometre long weld.

Too large to transport in one piece a 15 strong team were sent out to Qatar over a period of two years to assemble and finish each element."

Damien Hirst #7

"UK studio Designscape Architects has completed two buildings for artist Damien Hirst. One is an art production studio that appears to change colour from blue to green and the other is a glazed brick building designed for using toxic chemicals.

The two buildings are located near Damien Hirst's existing studio in Stroud, Gloucestershire. The Science Studio provides the British artist with a generous workspace, storage facility and private gallery for showing work to clients, while the Formaldehyde Building provides a controlled environment for working with chemicals, particularly the preservative previously used by the artist to create sculptures from dead animals.
Nine-metre walls give high ceilings to rooms inside the studio, while the gallery is housed in an adjoining 18-metre-high block that is clad with dark grey panels. Interior walls are lined with plywood and plasterboard, providing a strong surface for hanging artwork.

The neighbouring Formaldehyde Building was designed to fit the shape of its site, with one extremely pointy corner.

Science Studio.

The studios and art stores have stringent requirements for diffused daylight, as well as privacy and security, so all the daylight is provided from the roof except in the staff amenity areas. This results in very big elevations with very few openings - 70 m long and 9 m high without interruption. The walls are clad in 200 mm thick mineral fibre filled composite metal panels which provide an airtight, fireproof, highly insulated and secure external envelope. Inside these walls there is a high density blockwork wall clad in ply and plasterboard to provide a high-strength hanging wall for artwork, as well as providing a services zone, additional security and additional thermal mass.

Formaldehyde Building.

The building houses a specialist studio facility which uses various chemicals and is therefore fitted out with specialist finishes and services which enable a safe working environment and safe ventilation. The chemicals being used react with and corrode many commonly used building materials, so the choice of glazed brickwork provided a solution that is naturally resistant to the chemicals, but also expresses the use of the building through the choice of external finishes.
