A unique Art Exhibition
inspired by musical instruments

Welcome to the online exhibition of INSTRUMENTATION. Luthier Nick Carpenter has created a range of works, all involving or relating to musical instruments in some way.  For some works he has used old, defunct instruments, turning them into a new art form and breathing fresh life into those once forgotten  treasures. Nick has also built some imaginative new creations, going well beyond the standard range of instruments you would normally see.

Nick explores the personalities of musical instruments and the human connection we have with them. Each art piece tells it’s own story,  with themes of beauty, untold mysteries, moments in musical history or political commentary, often using them as metaphors or simply as a light hearted play on words.


We hope you enjoy the exhibition and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
