New: Gestalten Art and Design Books now available

New: Gestalten Art and Design Books now available

I'm pleased to present a new addition to our website : a collection of art and design books from publisher Gestalten. The Age of Collage Vol. 3 is one of the books we have in the collection and is available to buy here . The work covers a broad range of the history of collage and also features work by our artist Vesna Vrdlojak whose work you can see here

Cut, paste, create: While Collage was conceived in the early 1900s, it seems to be the perfect form of expression for the twenty-first century, with all its juxtapositions and eclecticism and strange bedfellows. In our present The Age of Collage 3, the simple act of mixing together different elements allows us to question our reality and make new worlds. The Age of Collage 3 showcases a new crop of artistic vanguards advancing the medium’s possibilities, piece-by-piece. Equipped with a craft knife, paintbrush, stylus, scissors, or tablet, a collage artist’s toolkit is as varied as their creations and this book brings their work back to the paper page.

Art of Collage Vol 3 Gestalten books at Gas Gallery

 

Creating things by hand is an intentional gesture that has brought with it a resistance to digitisation of image consumption, and an awareness of the manipulation of photographic imagery. Many of today’s artists are using digital media in new ways to create layered compositions. In doing so the process of addition and removal and combining contrasting elements is not just an artistic process. It is a way of thinking.

New Artist Christine Wilkinson

 

This week I'm really happy to introduce the work of new artist Christine Wilkinson to the gallery with a collection of Artist Proofs on paper. 

Christine Wilkinson's colourful work is a combination of digital processes - sometimes called 'camera-less photography'. Working with photographic negatives and digital pixels she creates something in between photography and painting with highly colourful results.

Each print is an archival giclée print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag. The colour is printed to the edge. This initial collection of proofs are sized at 70 x 70 cm. Framing options are available too. 

If you would like to view some of the works or have framing queries then please get in touch

Art Fair at Home : Jo de Pear

Jo de Pear at Gas Gallery

In a parallel universe, we would have been setting up the Affordable Art Fair Stand in Hampstead today, preparing all the work on the walls and print boxes for all the eager art lovers to enjoy. Instead... we are doing things differently in this current corona-universe and it has presented the opportunity to give each of the exhibiting Artists their own 'solo online show' as part of our Art Fair at Home series. 10% of the profits will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières @doctorswithoutborders who are doing extraordinarily challenging work in this current crisis across the world. ⠀


Next week sees the 'opening' of a new body of work by the prolific printmaker Jo de Pear. We will have a collection of unframed and framed original and limited edition works available along with an Artist interview to find out how Jo's been adapting to the current changes and what impact that maybe having on her work. One thing is certain, it's not going to stop her creating work !⠀

Please stay tuned for more soon.

Marie Lenclos Exclusive Online Show

Marie Lenclos Art Fair at Home with Gas Gallery

 

Following the postponement of the Affordable Art Fair in Hampstead, we will be presenting solo shows of the Artists whose work was being prepared for the show. Each Artist will have a 10 day slot and work will be exclusive to the shows. Gas Gallery will be donating 10% of profits to a different charity, chosen by the Artist. ⠀

First up will be the wonderful Marie Lenclos whose urban landscapes painted with oil on linen have been beguiling collectors from all over the world. Marie's beautiful paintings evoke a sense of space and peace and although they are free from people, they are not desolate or sad. Marie's innate colour sense and obsession with light give these paintings a unique, wonderful quality. They are quick to sell, so please get in touch if you would like advance notice of works available. ⠀

The show starts on 23 April - watch this space for further news and to have first dibs on work please sign up to the newsletter :
