Unifying Spirits brings together new work by British artists Graham Sayle and Sam Padfield. Comprising large scale and interactive sculptures, the exhibition explores an increasingly aggressive architecture of a city in flux.
Graham Sayle (b. 1986, Merseyside) is a London based artist with a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths. His work has a clear fascination in the hostile architecture of the city and the boundary between private and public space. Working with the materials found in the built environment, his work explores the tension and underlying violence in the design of the city. Recent Shows include ‘Over, Under, Around and Through’ (2017) at Golborne Gallery and ‘V.BLOCC’ (2017) at Batt Coop, Paris.
Sam Padfield (b.1987) lives and works in London. He has a BA hons in Fine Art from Central St Martins. He has completed a two year apprenticeship at Gaskell Quartz Ltd, training in precision hard and semi-precious stone carving and polishing, alongside restoration of 18th Century hardstone objects. Group shows include ‘Adventitious Encounters’ for Open Space Contemporary and ’Somewhere in-between’ at Karavil Contemporary.
