Adam Sach is a designer and an artist that combines traditional methods of dyeing, printing and textile techniques with recycled, discarded and found materials. Drawing and the written word often underpin the work and outcomes on both paper and fabric are mixed media in approach, this includes the use of natural plant dyes, sewing, weaving, printing, painting, collage, photography and appliqué.
The majority of his work comments on his own experiences and at the same time makes reference to nature, society, politics and the complexities of relationships. Obsessions around numbers, words and images and the feelings associated with them are frequently returned to, as are representations and interpretations of memories and the importance placed on the objects related to them.
He held his first exhibition at The Republic Gallery in London as part of a group show titled studiolifelines, the work Tell me everything and then leave was a large scale wall display of mixed media drawings at various dimensions and opened in November 2016.
Most recently garments have been the final outcome of his process, resulting in sach; existing items of clothing are recycled and re-worked using plant dyes, printing, weaving, embroidery and appliqué in natural fabrics as well as organic cotton bases. These pieces are intended to coexist with the two dimensional works. A love and respect for nature, craft and tradition is always present in the work.
Adam continues to consult for ethical brands having spent over a decade designing menswear for international brands, presenting collections at London & Milan fashion weeks and lecturing in the subject.
