Following a wildly successful launch in our sister gallery, Jealous North is thrilled to bring the colourful, energetic works by David Shillinglaw to Crouch End in ‘Rewilding’.
The works in this exhibition are a cross pollination of ideas and materials, mixing drawing, painting and collage into one hyperactive patchwork of information. Different mediums wrestle for space, and colours compete for attention. Amidst this chaos there is an attempt to organise space, discover some peace, draw a line under the abundance, and tend to a visual garden.
David Shillinglaw last worked with Jealous back in 2016 for his one day pop-up exhibition ‘Optical Delusion’, held in celebration of the release of his new print edition at that time, titled ‘Cosmic’.
This tied in with his takeover of the rooftop mural on top of Jealous Towers. Watch the video below to learn more about David’s past projects, including a mural he worked on just down the road from Jealous East.
