Mad in Margate
There will be saucy goings on this Autumn at Artgame, when Carrie Reichardt & Bob Osborne take up residence at the gallery on 19th-27th October 2019.  There will be Mad In Margate with themed mosiacs and ceramics from the studio of Carrie Reichardt and a Cash Is King show of defaced bank notes – subverting the ultimate symbol of authority.
Mad In Margate celebrates saucy humour and tacky smut.  It will be cheap, rude and wrong on every level


The work of Carrie Reichardt is often strident and bold.  The artist uses her craft skills to produce beautiful creations that invariably have a strong message.  The artist often deploys found objects and existing imagery to champion ideas such as social justice and opportunity for all, as well as to hold authority to account.

In its radical permance, Carrie Reichardt’s work has a temporality that stands in contrast to the ephemerality of other forms of urban contemporary art.  Drawing on her skills in ceramics and printing, Reichardt has pioneered an influenctial new aesthetic – which she describes as a form of “ceramic collage”. In addition to exhibition internationally Carrie was Artist-in-Residence at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in 2018.


Bob Osborne is a mixed-media artist who hails from a romany gypsy family and studied creative writing at the University of East Anglia. His work is imbued with his ancestral ‘Rebel Not Taken’ brand and reflects the unconventional nature of a free spirit. Osborne’s art fuses poetry, collage and constructions and often incorporates lowbrow language as well as visual metaphors that draw on subversive irony and taboo humour. He has studios in St Ives, Cornwall and West London and has exhibited and published extensively, including the recent highly acclaimed Cash is King books.
