Artists bring the outside in at the Griffin Gallery

A gallery installation in west London is bringing the outside in with an exhibition called Pool.

13 artists inspired by gardens and nature have created an immersive space where the audience is asked to explore the medium of paint in new and modern formats.

The artists include; Rebecca Byrne, Ian Davenport, Lee Edwards, Liz Elton, Sarah Jones, Rob Leech, Juliette Losq, Vanessa Maurice-Williams, Onya McCausland, 

Sam Mould, SelmaParlour, Kes Richardson and Sarah Kate Wilson.

The show begins outside the gallery, with a field of pigment to be walked on and through, and continues inside with paintings that appear 

and disappear with blasts from a fog machine.

Entry to the body of the show is via an immersive work that also presents a tunnel into another world. 

Once inside, viewers will find suggestions of paths with glimpses as they progress, both of the garden of works itself and landscapes beyond.
Viewers are encouraged to engage with the show directly through deckchairs that can be moved around the space.

The exhibition at the Griffin Gallery near Latimer Road runs until June 10.
