Artists Adam Newton and Ben Sad will present collaborative artworks made via the post in an upcoming show.
Their exhibition Nice Try will run from April 7 – 11 April at Pie Factory Margate from 10am to 5pm.
Nice Try brings together experimental paintings, prints, sculptures and rugs exploring the dark underbelly of contemporary life. Combining elements of punk, street art, pop and traditional painting, they reflect on the angsty atmosphere of current events.
When Ben Sad moved to Oxford, he and Medway-based collaborator Adam Newton started to exchange works-in-progress via the post. Each would add another layer of collage and paint before returning it to the other.
The materials used were often whatever came to hand – including photos from old magazines, packaging tape and correction fluid. Some of the works have exchanged hands up to eight times.
Ben Sad is an artist/maker/designer that has worked and exhibited throughout the UK, Germany and Australia. Adam Newton is a painter who has enjoyed recent success exhibiting at the RA Summer Exhibition.
Pie Factory Margate is based at 7 Broad Street. More details here
