For the Grinling Gibbons 300 celebrations, which begin in August 2021, Tim Wright is showing some new, specially-made pieces. They are specifically inspired by the great sculptor's carvings and the associated, atmospheric spaces of historic London churches, in particular St. Mary Abchurch. They draw on the artist's continuing fascination with Gibbons' dramatic representations of transcendent abundance. At Dalkeith Palace his exhibit is expanded to include a number of other relevant pieces in keeping with the baroque splendour of the site.
