Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 6pm
Opening event on the 12th September, 6-8pm. Open to all.
OVADA Professional Development Award artists Sebastian Thomas and Nancy Dewhurst present Fly Tipping.
The artists decided to use the exhibition as an opportunity to collaborate. Whilst on the surface their practices seem quite different, both artists use a version of ‘collage’ in the development of their work. For Thomas this is through printmaking, layering cut paper, and assembling found objects. For Dewhurst, the process involves collecting and layering different thoughts, forms and snippets of language and information, allowing them mutate and evolve as she works.
Working across different cities, and exchanging ideas and images through email, the artists will collaboratively accumulate a body of material. They will use this material as the basis for an abstract visual narrative, developing a series of objects and props that will ultimately be presented as a film and installation at the exhibition.
Collage For Sculpture Workshop
Saturday 14 September, 2pm – 4pm
Parallel to their exhibition Fly Tipping, Nancy Dewhurst and Sebastian Thomas will lead a workshop in how you can use collage to create sculpture. Participants will be shown how the process of collaging with paper can be a useful vehicle with which to dream up new objects and sculptures.
