Ready to Join?


Please join me on another visual adventure and come and visit Sammy Slabbnick's Exhibition of collage works at the gallery.

I have not seen Sammy's work before, it is his second exhibition at the gallery so, it will be a surprise to me as well for you, but this what's all about going on an adventure!

Meet us inside the gallery, view his images and enjoy. If you like to go for coffee or lunch afterwards, please arrange this amongst yourselves as it is just off the Kings Road and there are plenty of nice places to go.

Sammy Slabbinck (born Protected content , Belgium) creates dynamic surrealist contemporary collages from vintage photographs. Found images are decontextualized and re-appropriated as Slabbinck plays with scale and juxtaposition. Using humour as a visual tool he choreographs compositions, meditating on the past while revealing the absurdity of popular culture. Witty, at times dark, and often visually psychedelic, the simplicity of his compositions belies the complexity of the work.

Slabbinck’s collages are often published as illustrations and have been featured in The New Yorker, The Telegraph and Der Spiegel. He has also made the artwork for many album covers, among which is You Want it Darker by Leonard Cohen.

IMPORTANT NOTE: No entrance fee required
If you like to get in touch with me regarding the meetup, please text/email/PM or WhatsApp me as my phone is on silent mode.

I'm looking forward meeting you there!
