From a towering wooden sculpture that looks uncanilly like a giant version of Noddy's hat to more delicate drawings on paper, North London's Parasol Unit is showcasing thirty works by New York-based interdisciplinary artist Martin Puryear. Displaying a purity of form that belies the rugged, lumberjack-esque methods of their making, Puryear's smooth, abstract pieces are created using traditional techniques that reflect the artist's enduring interest in craft and natural materials.
