Opening today is a new show of prints and original paintings by Artist and Printmaker Martin Grover whose work has been gaining great popularity in recent years, particularly in South London where much of his work is often referred to.
A former student of the Royal Academy, Martin has consistently produced intriguing and beguiling work. A playful narrative thread runs through his work, at one moment a little dark and woebegone and the next humorous and whimsical but always alluring.
Working from life, sketches, memory and photographs Martin reconstructs ephemeral scenes from the passing world. Childhood recollections, minor street incidents, slightly surreal radio traffic bulletins, brief news items, poems, short stories, Brockwell Park landscapes, the enigmatic allure of sheds and shelters are all recalled and captured with clarity and wit. At other times in a more trompe l’oeil (trick of the eye) style he produces very flat still lives of old records in their tattered sleeves and un-coordinated second hand shirt and tie sets.
Scottish Artist Natalie Ryde has been working hard over this year developing a new body of work. Working both on original drawings ranging in scale, from very small to gigantic, Natalie has also translated her work to create limited edition screenprints.
This is a recent development in Natalie's work, allowing her to create multiples of her work and to explore the potential of vivid colour and textures working with her intricate line work. These works have warped grid structures which Natalie says 'are based on the idea of a Quilted Multiverse, where parallel universes are created to live out the consequences of every decision'. Natalie continues by saying 'I was trying to comprehend the idea and started making drawings of repeated squares with slightly different contents. As they developed, I played with curves in the grids to better imagine them as flexible, like a fabric quilt'

Gas Gallery successfully launched Delphine Lebourgeois's original drawings at the Affordable Art Fairs in London and New York earlier this year, which saw an initial collection of 5 drawings sell quickly. This Autumn, Delphine has worked on adding to the collection and we are pleased to have them available to purchase both online and at our London showroom.
Each of Delphine's drawings are created using archival pen, Sennelier inks and watercolours on Fabriano Artistico paper 300gsm. There are a number that are available framed, and vary in sizes.
