Jake Grewal (b. 1994, London) lives and works in London. Drawing is central to Grewal’s practice and it is where an idea for a new work largely begins. Using predominantly charcoal, Grewal insistently repeats figures and scenes, often in different mediums and scales until his narratives are realised. Landscape and figure merge together and become one. Figures and trees dissolve and reappear on a journey together, sometimes cohabitating, sometimes being consumed, but always investigating the artist’s fascination with the passing of time.
