The Ben Oakley Gallery continues it’s year long commitment in presenting impressive, dynamic and stimulating two person shows. Hidden down a cobbly side road in Greenwich, London, the Ben Oakley Gallery is a small and cosy gallery and is responsible for curating an endless array of innovative events and exhibitions. This is one of them.
Mardy is a unique collaboration between two young exciting contemporary artists, Carne Griffiths & Rowan Newton (featured previously on ohDearyme HERE). The artists work is sketching & painting the same subjects in response to a studio sitting at the Gallery earlier this year.
‘Griffiths’ work explores fragmented portraiture and is defined by his intricate and delicate pen work combining three dimensional floral symbols, geometric forms and accompanied by his signature abstract marks & spills of ink, tea and brandy.
‘Newton’ tackles portraiture head on with bold strong colours and abstract realism, provoking strong emotion from the viewer. Extending his expressive mixed media technique with spray paint and acrylic to working with oils for the first time in this powerful exhibition.
The gallery will be releasing an exclusive collaborative print at the opening in a strictly limited edition –contact email@example.com for more information..
