Rokeby is an independent contemporary art gallery on Rosebery Avenue in London. The showcase both UK an international artists, and at the moment is highlighting the work of Brad Grievson, who is holding his first solo exhibition.
Greivson's interest lies in exploring the relationship between images and texture. He uses a variety of material to create intriguing surfaces that form undefined shapes. This combination leaves his work in a limbo state, somewhere between a collage and a painting, but at the same time, being neither. Grievson's pictures aren't stuck on canvas, nor are they drawn on, rather they are layers of photocopied prints.
For example, last year, while in New York, he took a pair of photographed paintings, cut out the images, and printed the remnants onto panels. This creates incomplete fragments that have been displaced from their original context, to produce a new reading or interpretation. At the exhibition, which runs until the 23rd of June, you can see works on paper, and a series of transfers on canvas.
