As part of a recent sponsorship by Gucci for Gas Gallery to appear on Artsy.net we are pleased to present our first online only exhibition. The sponsorship was awarded to Gas Gallery's director Gina Cross in recognition of her representation of female artists.
Themed 'Pop Art Femmes' this is a celebration of contemporary female artists' work - with the work expressing the joyful aspects of being female and living in the 21st century.
The exhibtion will feature 10 Artists working in painting, drawing, collage and print with prices starting from £100. The works will be available to view on Artsy and to purchase directly from Gas Gallery. All the work is exclusive to the show for the duration.
Joining Gas Gallery is Artist and Printmaker Sarah Duncan.
Sarah has created an extraordinary body of limited edition prints following a stay at the Kitt Peak observatory in the USA. Kitt Peak is home to the largest collection of telescopes in the world. Located 7000 ft elevation above Arizona’s Sonoran Desert in the Tohono O’Odham reserve, Kitt Peak houses 25 optical and 2 radio telescopes. It is a working observatory where astronomers sleep during the day and work at night.
For the past 2 years Sarah has been experimenting with different print techniques to develop her extensive visual research which has resulted in a wonderful collection of limited edition prints.
All of Sarah's prints are hand printed using traditional printing methods including etching, lithography and screeprinting and are available in small editions. To view work, please contact us
‘’I spent the nights photographing and drawing the stars, galaxies, nebulas and planets. I find the process of drawing and painting the stars is mesmerizing and meditative. The images expand and stars are born – much like in the universe. My series of prints have been inspired by my time spent at Kitt Peak and hope to explore the delicate equilibrium that we live in.’’
Simone Webb's work demonstrates a delicate melancholy organic time. Flora and fauna bloom and decay in painterly gestures, arrangements of petals float seamlessly in placid space. A desire for a fluid discourse between solid and gaseous forms manifest in flowers dissected with a blurring of focus. Insect and plant relations play out a perceived cycle of orchestrated pollination, horticultural worship by synchronised anthropods lay in a creeping mandala.
Limited edition prints and originals juxtapose the beautiful with the morbid, offering euphoric moments emerging from stark backgrounds graced with fragile flowers to instances of despondency, often dark in appearance, yet remaining equitably as elegant.
Tenses are enhanced by the unification of traditional and contemporary methods in which the final outcomes are formed. Whilst we often only get to view a fleeting moment of nature, she aims to create something of more permanence that can be observed at any given time. Fusing the past, present, and the ambiguous future of these together highlights the beauty alongside the mundanity that occurs throughout their natural life circle.
Stine has a love for creating visual stories and states that she is fascinated by narrative and space. This can be clearly seen in her meditative images, where the people, landscapes and abstract details tell their own stories.
We are pleased to be representing the work of Stine Goetrik, and will be showcasing her work for the first time in Stockholm at the Affordable Art Fair 10-13 October 2016.
Tom Buchanan is a London based Artist and Illustrator whose work is currently exploring his fascination with box art. His recent graphic artworks using found plates is based on a fascination about the relationship of bringing together unlikely objects. It’s a response project, using neglected lonely plates as a template or storyboard. It’s usually the quirks, textures and imperfections that ignite a trail. Tom would describe the process like ‘palm plate reading’ - you’re never quite sure what adventure might unfurl, but to give it too much thought is a failure, so it’s time to move on to the next. The naming and framing of the pieces has become integral to the process. Each plate is presented in a bespoke deep wooden box frame, colour tinted to accentuate the ceramic or story
Tom says of his work overall 'Image making is my vocation and an eternal work in progress. Although in awe of the digital process, I've always had a love for the tactile, experimenting with assemblage and the endless possibilities of box art. This curiosity developed into a series of curated, open submission exhibitions & events celebrating this art form. ‘Out of The Box’ has evolved into a personal study documenting works far and wide, whether professional practitioners to outsider artists. Beyond the extraordinary art, it’s as much about objects, the joys of collecting & absurdist anthropology'
Vesna Vrdoljak is a collage Artist living and working in Amsterdam. Originally trained In European film and Aesthetics at Masters level, Vesna did not originally see herself as an Artist until she began working in collage in 2012. The process began organically by Vesna combining appealing images sourced from vintage magazines and old photographs and she is self-taught.
A strong narrative feel runs throughout her work, with each piece imbued with a story that can be open to interpretation, by combining images that at first may not relate to each other. Vesna fuses analogue images from magazines and journals with old photographs and bits of coloured paper, to create her narrative arrangements which are all glued together by hand.
Vesna’s most recent exploration with the medium is in creating limited edition prints by scanning found images and playing with scale and texture to create new narratives.
Gas Gallery is pleased to present a series of limited edition prints and original collages exclusively.
