The internationally renowned artist Gavin Turk has chosen his Top Picks from the Curated Hang at this year’s Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair.

The annual Curated Hang is entirely unique to Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair's model, bringing work by independent, up-and-coming, global artists into conversation with established names exhibited by leading galleries.

Celebrated British artist Gavin Turk first made a name for himself following the Royal College of Art MA show in 1991. Gavin’s controversial contribution to the exhibition was a blue heritage plaque reading, ‘Gavin Turk worked here 1989-91’. Catching the attention of Charles Saatchi, Gavin’s minimal and conceptual approach propelled him into the Young British Artist movement of the 1990’s. Since his swift rise to fame, Gavin has remained a central and integral figure in the contemporary art scene.

WOOLWICH CONTEMPORARY PRINT FAIR

Sarah Lorrimer-Riley is a self-taught contemporary British artist. Her digital collage work is characterised by the playful layering of photographic elements, creating a bright, bold and sometimes unsettling alternative reality. Sarah's work invites the viewer to explore and question the narrative in focus, holding a magnifying glass on to modern British Society. Sarah will often hand finish prints with 24 carat Gold leaf, or pencil and ink markings, meaning each piece is totally unique.

Local artist, Sarah Lorrimer-Riley has had work accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition less than six months after she started her painting career. The Summer exhibition has taken place every year since 1769 and has featured many iconic artists (including Turner, Constable and Tracey Emin amongst many others). The theme for the exhibition this year is Climate.

Sarah’s selected piece entitled ‘Zeus’ was created against the backdrop of a global pandemic, and explores the idea of the impossibility of trying to tame the forces of nature. It is displayed in the Lecture Room, curated by Sculptor Conrad Shawcross and is hung alongside works by Grayson Perry, Tim Shaw and Bill Jacklin. The Summer Exhibition runs until 21st August 2022.
