About the edition
This new and exclusive limited edition print has been commissioned for Studio Voltaire's Frieze New York's Viewing Room presentation. Grewal's work expresses autobiographical experiences within the language of Romanticism. The work is situated within a dream-like reality that references the male nude through a queer gaze. Figures are exposed to the natural world which is often used allegorically to vocalise Grewal’s internal landscape. The edition directly supports Studio Voltaire's exhibition, learning and studio programmes
About the Artist
Jake Grewal (b.1994) lives and works in London. His works are in a constant dialogue between people and nature, portrait and landscape. His figures appear in uncanny scenes set in natural settings and are ambiguous within their environment. Grewal shows the male nude and the natural world through a queer gaze. There is fluidity in how he looks at the nature and the figure, both are of equal importance and are evocative of one another. His works can be read as allegories of his, as he calls it, inner landscape. They thus become an attempt to uncover something true from the inside and try to make it visible on the outside. Although Jake Grewal’s works bear autobiographical traits that can be found fragmentarily within the paintings, they address essentially universal themes, which provide the viewer with intimate and emotional access to his painting.
The artist work was recently included in Bloomberg New Contemporaries, South London Gallery, London (2021); On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous, Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai (2021). Grewel graduated from The Royal Drawing School, London in 2019.
