Joseph Gartell

I am an artist living and working in London. I am fascinated with line and structure, taking pleasure from the shapes, form and hue of the world around me.

I like to deconstruct those things that I study, playing with what I perceive as their constituent forms and then rebuilding them to arrive at an image that retains qualities of the subject whilst also being something completely different.

I am in the initial stages of my journey as an artist and thus far my re-imaginations have focused on the animal world. Their elegance, energy and structural efficiency make them the perfect foil for my explorations.

Thank you for taking a look at my work.


Kind Regards,
Joseph Gartell

Joseph Gartell at The Other Art Fair

The Other Art Fair

TOAF proved a hugely rewarding experience; I was fortunate enough to speak to a host of art enthusiasts and talented artists.

The work received a good reception; I now hope to build on that with more material this year!

One point to note - I was later informed that on Saturday (12 May) a lady had patiently waited to speak to me only for me not to see her. On the chance that this lady has visited the website; sincere apologies that we did not get to speak. I would have thoroughly enjoyed discussing my work with you.

"Menagerie: Revisited" at 60 Threadneedle Street
- finishes Monday 23 January 2012

My show at 60 Threadneedle Street is now drawing to a close. It has been amazing to display my work at such an impressive venue; the large spaces were an ideal backdrop for my debut collection.

I'd once again like to thank Vanessa Brady of VJB Arts for the opportunity and John Jones for their help and guidance.

"Menagerie: Revisited" at 60 Threadneedle Street
September 2011 - January 2012

Working in collaboration with VJB Arts, the collection "Menagerie: Revisited" is now on show at 60 Threadneedle Street in the heart of the City of London.

Drawing on the ideas developed to create the original collection, with the four new pieces I have used both bold and intricate line to try and capture patterns and structures present in the natural world. By doing so I have attempted to convey the power and grace of the creatures depicted.

I would like to thank Vanessa Brady of VJB Arts for kindly giving me this opportunity to show at such a fantastic, spacious venue; and for helping me realise this new, expanded show.

I have also had the pleasure of working closely with Framers and Art Consultants John Jones for the new pieces. Their help and guidance has been invaluable, and I'm delighted that my new work is presented in four exquisite John Jones frames.

Menagerie

23-28 May 2011

One of two shows from brother and sister artist collaboration
Joseph and Sophie Gartell.

Private View: Tuesday 24th May 6pm - 9pm.

The Air Gallery, 32 Dover Street, London W1S 4NE.
Open Daily 10am - 6pm.


Joseph Gartell presents his debut show "Menagerie"; an exploration of line and form in the natural world. Joseph's distinctive style emerges from a process of re-imagination; each piece is built from the shapes and forms Joseph sees in his subject. The result is intended to be powerful; "Menagerie" is a celebration of the energy and vibrancy of the animal kingdom.

Running consecutively with Joseph's show, Sophie Gartell presents STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. Visit www.sophiegartell.com for details.
