Ripe Mangoes Profile: Sam Newby
We’re continuing profiling each of this year’s exhibiting artists in the build up to the launch of Ripe Mangoes #01, selected from the degree shows at Southampton Solent University and Winchester School of Art at the University of Southampton.
Sam examines objects and materials that are often overlooked or unseen. Recently, she’s been particularly interested in floor furnishings and our unacknowledged and strangely intimate relationship with them. Using RTI technology, alongside traditional textile mediums, Sam celebrates the intricate details and memories of the carpets and concrete we walk on.
“By means of replication and preservation, my work highlights the interesting qualities of various floorings linked to memory and history.”
Join us on Friday 19th July at 7pm at the Alfred Arcade on Old Northam Road for the launch of Ripe Mangoes #01.
