Art Exhibition: Jane Grosvenor and James Holdsworth

Tuesday, 28th May - Sunday, 14th July

Cocktail Reception: Tuesday, 28th May, 6pm - 9pm

Join us at the Wild Heart Bar & Grill in Karma Sanctum Soho Hotel to view the works of this exclusive collaboration.

This series of portraits of famous idols are reimagined by Jane Grosvenor and James Holdsworth. We aim to study the personality of the subject through their histories which gives another dimension to the portrait. We are attempting the understand the subject’s disposition, his or her complexities, their problems, addictions, joys, disorders, depressions, successes and failures.

The painting becomes a kind of psychological examination in paint, collage and resin. A painting made abstract with expressive painterly brush strokes of colour, black and white, with text, ripped collage, historical images pertinent to the subject and the times, layered, painted over and re-layered. The famous popular photo of the subject is deconstructed then reconstructed several times over and painted with swirls, smears and flicks, with speed, impulsively, spontaneously, forming an abstract language with its unique informal, insouciant narrative. It’s analogous to a jazz improvisation, discords and harmonies, chaos and order, out of time, frozen without beginning or end, hanging is a space somewhere.
