Meet the Artist | Jake Grewal


[ Online Talk )

This event has passed.

Come and join us online for an in-depth discussion with exhibiting artist, Jake Grewal.

Together with our Assistant Curator Dr Lydia Miller, Grewal will discuss his practice and the exhibition Some days I feel more alive, currently on display at Pallant House Gallery.

In his exhibition, Grewal intertwines charcoal drawings and paintings of landscapes where nude figures seamlessly merge with the rich, dusky surroundings. Inspired by British Neo-Romantic artists like Keith Vaughan, Grewal portrays figures, some solitary while others form intimate connections. Employing his personal photographs and sketches, Grewal crafts his art and frequently paints outside, capturing nature’s raw essence in his visuals.

Join the talk to find out more about his work and practice.

Artist bio - Jake Grewal

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.
