About the work

If I Knew // Shifting Resistance is in coloured pencil, depicting a secluded interaction with dappled sunlight.

About the artist:

Born 1994 London, Jake Grewal lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Fine Art Painting, Brighton University (2016); and Postgraduate Scholarship at the Royal Drawing School (2019).

Grewal’s work expresses autobiographical experiences within the language of Romanticism. The work is situated within a dream-like reality that references the male nude through a queer gaze. Figures are exposed to the natural world, which is often used allegorically to vocalise Grewal’s internal landscape.

Selected exhibitions include On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous: Jake Grewal, Prem Sahib, Sunil Gupta, Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai (2021); New Contmeporaries 2020, South London Gallery, London (2021); Deity, Arusha Gallery, Edinburgh (2020); Everyday is Sunday, UTA Artists Space, Beverly Hills (2020); No Time Like The Present, Public Gallery, London (2020); Best Of The Drawing Year, Christies, London (2019); Full English, Platform Southwark, London (2019); Looking for Validation, The Nayland Rock Hotel, Margate (2019); and 2016 Wood Foundation Prize, Baltic 39, Newcastle upon Tyne (2016).

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
