Saturday 30 Mar – Saturday 18 May | Clayden Gallery
Opening Event: Saturday 6 Apr | 11am – 4pm | FREE, all welcome!
Artsists James Jarvis and Ged Wells have a shared obsession with skateboarding, having both worked for iconic London skateboard shop Slam City Skates in the late 80s and early 90s. Meeting recently for the first time, the two have collaborated for this exhibition, exploring and celebrating the object that has informed and defined both their early career paths.
Jarvis presents artwork that reduces the skateboard to its essence as an object: a plank of wood.
Wells presents a series of zoomorphic, shapeshifting relief sculptures depicting malcontent skateboard graphics, evolved as purposeful planks, carved from an errant tree of life.
