Over the Spring term of ROCK PAPER SCISSORS local primary school children visualised characters, narratives and alternative identities using drawing and experimental printing techniques. The weekly sessions echoed Jake’s ongoing practice which plays with fiction versus reality.
Jake Garfield’s recent previous exhibitions include The Real Thing, Mercer Chance Gallery, London (2019); Bunches, Platform Southwark, London (2018). As ‘Line of Thought,’ Jake links image-making to philosophical thinking and group discussion at the Royal Academy, Royal Drawing School, Tate, RCA, Whitechapel Gallery and Bow Arts. His own work explores worlds within worlds and the relationship between images and reality.
