Artists who have participated in exhibitions at Griffin Gallery are featured below.
Jelena Bulajic makes impeccably realised portrait paintings at a maximum scale of almost 3 metres high.
Selected instinctively, her subjects are mature men or women who the artist often identifies by chance encounter. Initially responding to the sense of history and personality that comes to reveal itself in the human face, Bulajic uses photographs to unable her to forensically observe the subjects. The ensuing painting retain a photographic quality from distance, but on closer inspection reveal a unique and expressive process where a combination of materials including acrylic emulsion, pencil, ground limestone, marble dust and graphite dust give way to something close to abstraction.
Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods in January 2014.
