ArtAttack Exhibition 2016


Co-founder of ArtAttack, Alex Lebus, was keen to look at the art being produced by a 1000 artists who had graduated in the last five years.   I was selected along with 19 other artists to show in the Crpyt Gallery at St Pancras Parish Church.

 “We will be showing a wide range of work: figurative painting, photography, sculpture and immersive art. The judges include the well-known painter Andrew Salgado, German visual artist Sandro Kopp and gallerist Juliette Loughran” said Alex Lebus.  “David Hockney sold his first works as a student for £10 – his work sells today for millions. But the future artistic greats are today’s students and graduates, and they are just as hard to find now, as ever. The Winter Exhibition seeks to make some of this brilliant work more visible, offering gallery-quality work at below gallery prices.” 

The architecture of this famous crypt, with its domed ceilings, lent itself perfectly to my work.  Each artist was able to create their own gallery within the atmospheric crypts.  It gave me the opportunity to create a site-specific Sculpturescape, viewable through what looked like a boarded-up crypt door.

The world’s first online social network and marketplace connecting buyers directly with up-and-coming artists. ArtAttack is revolutionising the art world, opening it up to everyone and supporting lesser known artists. Gallerist Juliette Loughran has praised ArtAttack saying “with the app it is not just a case being able to discover one or two more artists, you can discover hundreds of new artists in a way that is simply not possible in a traditional show.” 

Co-founders India Irving and Alex Lebus saw the difficulty young artists face once they have left art school. There is a fundamental need for artists to support themselves while nurturing their talent and creativity during this vulnerable period. Artattack removes all of the unnecessary costs in selling and buying art, offering a platform for people to own gallery quality art at below gallery prices.

There are already has 1000 artists on the app, with users in over 40 countries.

The Clashing Rocks

The Clashing Rocks

This series of Sculpturescapes is an interpretation of the epic myth of Jason, Ιáσων and his journey through the Symplegades – the Clashing Rocks, on his way to find the Golden Fleece in the land of Colchis. Taking inspiration from Jason’s perspective on board his ship the Argo, Gigi uses a single aperture, as used in telescopes and creates three-dimensional sculptures from within a light chamber. The essential elements of this episode are the journey, the world beyond the horizon and the world below.

The ship ‘Argo’ was built with the help of the Goddess of crafts, Athena and Jason filled the ship with the leading heroes of his time including Heracles. They had to pass through The Clashing Rocks which until then had never been achieved.  The rocks would crush anything or anyone in their path.  An old man called Phineus gave Jason the advice to set loose a white dove to fly between the rocks and then if the dove succeeded, they should row with all their might and sail through.

The lines are the ineluctable lines of force which simultaneously drive and lead Jason on his journey towards the horizon line and into the unknown.  No-one can ever reach their horizon even though it hangs there like a beacon.  Jason is on the high seas with only his Argonauts to guide him.
