Hidden Dragons is Mark J Newton's first solo exhibition in London. He paints fractured and distorted images of endangered species using digital and online sources. His collaged paintings hint at the role played by the screen and technology in relation to contemporary attitudes towards animals.
Newton alludes to a fragmented and displaced world of reptiles and amphibians that are on the brink of extinction; animals affected by other invasive species, habitat loss and more notably illegal wildlife trafficking.
10% of all sales of works will be donated to the wildlife monitoring trade network TRAFFIC, as well as a single donation to the Durrell Foundation from a piece dedicated to endangered Ploughshare Tortoises.
The artist will be giving a talk about his work and the plight of rare reptiles and amphibians at the new i'klectik gallery on Thursday 24th July 2014 at 18.00. Please RSVP if you wish to attend this event at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Private View will be on Thursday 17th July 2014 at 18.30.
i'klectik art lab and café is an artist-led space run by Cass Fine Art Alumni Eduard Solaz and Thessa Van Der Kuyp.
- Opening: 17th July - 31st July 2014
- Address: Old Paradise Yard, 20 Carlisle Lane, London, SE1 7LG
