4me4you visits FOLD Gallery which featured the artists Dominic Beattie and Neil Zakiewicz - “NIGHT SCHOOL”.
FOLD Gallery…Dominic Beattie and Neil Zakiewicz’s work typifies a contemporary re-skilling of art practitioners with their shared interest in light industrial practices, such as woodworking and ceramics. Painting is included, but through using mass production methods of block printing and industrial coatings. They have a passion for making generally, regardless of whether the finished products function as sculpture or furniture, abstract painting or decoration.
Beattie makes beautiful ‘ceramics’, using off-cut cardboard and wood, which are glued and stapled together and then painted. Zakiewicz’s work uses folded, spray-painted steel and polyurethane paint on routed and embossed wood.
