Event map

Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair is delighted to present a solo exhibition of work by Jake Garfield (b.1990).


Face-painting and pictures-within-pictures are recurring motifs in a series of multi-layered woodcuts exploring the notion of artistic persona. Garfield’s printmaking blurs the distinction between the world of the artist, the world of an image and meta-worlds within an image. These woodcuts present us with both the absurd and sincere moments of introspection as we are introduced to imagery of artists, clowns, museums, haircuts and childbirth.

Garfield’s practice is rooted in the woodcut printmaking process. Several works walk a tight-rope between representation and abstraction, which is born out of a tension between the illusory depth of each image and the inherent flatness of the woodcut medium. His unique practise is rooted in the Fair’s mantra to reinterpret traditional techniques for contemporary audiences and he has shown with WCPF for a number of years.

Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair is proud to partner with Mayfair Art Weekend to showcase Garfield’s work ahead of its annual November fair. The recently opened Elizabeth Line will enable visitors to travel from the West End to Woolwich in just 15 minutes. Exhibition made possible with the generous help of Grosvenor.

Jake Garfield (b. 1990, London) trained at The Royal College of Art, The Royal Drawing School and Brighton University. Recent prizes include The Boodle Hatfield Award (2021), The Elizabeth Greenshields Award (2021) and The John Purcell Paper Award (2020). He exhibits in the UK and internationally, including shows at El Segundo Museum Of Art (Los Angeles), 155a Gallery (London), Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair, London Original Print Fair (London) and Christies (London & New York).  Garfield’s work is held in numerous private and public collections including The British Museum and The Royal Collection. @jakegarfieldart | www.jakegarfield.co.uk
