Group Exhibition

Jealous East

07 Sep 2017 — 24 Sep 2017

Jealous encourages you to dive, headfirst, into our upcoming group exhibition ‘Swimming Pools’. A swimming pool, which can be pristine and serene or aggressive and feral. Exploring public or private water; they simultaneously deliver the yearning of glamour, the challenge of competition, the seduction of youth and the promise of sunshine.

The exhibition will showcase existing and new works from Aaron Jupin, Adam Bridgland, Andrew Burgess, Anka Dabrowska, Bench Allen, Ben Eine, Broken Fingaz, Charlotte Windsor, Angry Dan, Dario Illari, David Shrigley, Gaurab Thakali, Hwa Seon Yang, Jia Chaun, Lena Goodison, Lucy Gough, Lucy Smallbone, Ornamental Conifer, Richard Denne, Rose Blake, Tom Adams, Tyler Spangler and Yigi Özden. With each artist exploring the genre of the pool picture across a variety of mediums including original drawings, spray paint, photography and painting, the exhibition will also include exclusive limited edition prints fresh from Jealous Print Studio.
‘In the swimming pool pictures, I had become interested in the more general problem of painting the water, finding a way to do it. It is an interesting formal problem; it is a formal problem to represent water, to describe water, because it can be anything. It can be any colour and it has no set visual description.’
