Comment on this story on the

Brentford-based collage artist Sam Dodson is holding a solo exhibition at the Brentford Gallery this weekend (10 June – 12 June). There is a private view on Friday from 6.9pm and the exhibition is open on Saturday and Sunday from 12-6pm.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Future is Now’, will be predominantly work completed in lockdown and new pieces.

Sam Dodson is a professional artist and former musician in Loop Guru and the post-punk band, the Transmitters, in the 1970s. His art explores collage in varying forms with intervention and construction. Sam’s works have been featured in approximately twenty Dada and Surrealism books and magazines. His works have also appeared on album sleeves.

He has had pieces exhibited twice at the Saatchi Gallery and has recently held exhibitions in the Brixton Tate Gallery and the Portland Museum of Architecture.

Dada artist Sam Dodson describes himself as ‘a man trapped in his own collage’ and surrounds himself with a cornucopia of comic books, found objects and curious ephemera in an atmospheric studio on Johnson’s Island in Brentford.

Brentford Gallery is on Johnson’s Island, formed by a loop in the River Brent, and is accessible via a footbridge from Catherine Wheel Road or Dock Road.
