Industry's artists Benjamin Rollins Caldwell & Charlotte Filbert will be featured as part of Art Southampton. Both based in South Carolina, these artists demonstrate Industry's innovative & vibrant collection, either through inventive design or spirited, vibrant painting.
This year for Art Southampton, Industry features 2 artists from South Carolina, with 2 completely different styles of art. Now in its fourth year, Art Southampton proclaims to showcase the absolute best in international, modern and contemporary design, and will take place at Nova's Ark, 95 acres of sculpture and design in Bridgehampton, NY. The artists displayed this year shall exemplify contemporary conception and design, in very opposing ways. Designer Benjamin Rollins Caldwell starts with everyday objects, and shapes them into various forms that take on different meaning as they take on new function. The "Label-Whore" series combines the function of furniture with the branding of labels, creating a juxtaposition between leisure & logo. On the other side, interdisciplinary artist Charlotte Filbert portrays vibrancy and color through her paintings, each a different take on themes including prosperity, harmony & redemption. For both artists, animated, energetic pieces act as their vessels of expression, but their difference in mediums allows for a wide range of concept & interpretation.
