Making A Mark Press Release

 Leyden Gallery | 9/9a Leyden Street | London | E1 7LE

 15th – 18th October (Private View 14th October 6-9pm)

 Leyden Gallery is pleased to present MAKING A MARK, a showcase of selected work from artists Andy Gashe, Jody Little and Christina Macaulay.

 Using diverse and often experimental techniques which include painting, drawing, printmaking and collage, the three artists bring their own unique perspectives to their artwork but are drawn together by their shared experiences.

 Andy Gashe’s work is made as a reaction to his urban environment; scratching the many-layered surfaces that surround us in an attempt to show this strange paradox between fragility and brutality which leads to the re-creation of both real and imagined landscapes.

 Jody Little's work is driven by questions about our past and identity and the memories that prevail with each of our family histories. He explores this primarily with printmaking techniques using personal memorabilia and ephemera as inspiration as well as within works themselves.

 Christina Macaulay works intuitively and makes what have been most commonly described as painterly drawings. These are informed by carefully selected images, found objects and photographs which provide a reference point for her exploration through memory, emotion and experience.

 10% of all sales will raise funds for the Albert Kennedy Trust charity who provide support to LGBT homeless young people in crisis (www.akt.org.uk)
