Sam Broad

Sam Broad is involved in two exhibitions in October:

Monster opens on Tuesday 5 October
at Mygalaxi Gallery, Dixon St, Wellington.

The second exhibiton, opens a night later!
Allez Oop, opens on Wednesday 6 October
at Solander Works on Paper Gallery, 218 Willis St, Wellington.
Sam will be showing new prints alongside the work of Jacob Rolfe.

Sounds like it is going to be very interesting! Solander says:
"Set in a weird faux Victorian future, filled with the excesses of consumerism,
this exhibition of woodcuts by Sam Broad speaks of a society on the brink.
...This body of new work is infused with Sam's characteristic humour and irony.
Like billboards at a sideshow, the bizarre and the outrageous jostle for our attention....
Framed in ornate circular oak frames with convex bubbled glass,
Sam takes us on a crazy ride into the future
as we look out from the porthole in our spaceship of humanity."
