iVisit.... The Griffin Gallery

  • The Griffin Gallery 21 Evesham Street London, W11 4AJ United Kingdom (map)

Griffin Gallery is committed to supporting the global artistic community, creating a space for discussion about contemporary art and showcasing the very best of national and international talent. The exhibition programme offers a platform for emerging as well as established artists, and the two studios are occupied by a wide range of artists from around the world, with differing concerns and approaches to making.  At the centre of the programme is a belief that an engagement with materials is fundamental to the act of creating contemporary art. 

The Studio Building houses Griffin Gallery, two purpose built artists’ studios and the head office of ColArt International, family-owned parent company for world renowned art material brands Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Conté á Paris, Reeves and Lefranc & Bourgeois; whose origins date back to the early 18th Century. Adjoining the studios is the Innovation and Development Laboratory where new artists’ materials are developed, giving resident artists a unique opportunity to learn and experiment with the wealth of materials and knowledge in the ColArt laboratory 


28 April - 10 June

Curated by Rebecca Byrne and Liz Elton

‘Pool’ explores the expanded field of painting via the device of a constructed landscape, a garden, with works brought together so that the show becomes an immersive experience in itself.  

Beginning with framed work and moving into sculptural pieces, video and performance, all emanating from an interest in paint and painting, ‘Pool’ aims to demonstrate the potentiality of painting now and promote a discussion of its possibilities.

Featuring Artists: Rebecca Byrne, Ian Davenport, Lee Edwards, Liz Elton, Sarah Jones, Rob Leech, Juliette Losq, Vanessa Maurice-Williams, Onya McCausland, Sam Mould, Selma Parlour, Kes Richardson and Sarah Kate Wilson
