Drawing on over a decade of image-making and research on themes of protest and urban space, Irish artist Joy Gerrard archives and painstakingly remakes media-borne crowd images from around the world.  Recent exhibitions in Dublin and London mark the latest development in this project, presenting an abstract film work alongside monochrome paintings and drawings of the Arab risings of 2011, anti-Trump demonstrations and ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests from 2016. Her crowds are viewed from above, suggesting the remove of media observation, while the fluidity and drama of their moment is expressed through precise, expressive mark-making.

 

The elemental simplicity of Gerrard’s Japanese ink drawings and paintings belies a more complex meditation on the contemporary circulation of images, the precarious freedom of protest and the contemporary relation between populism and representative democracy.

 

For Edgework Gerrard has made printworks of three of her drawings. These works are larger than the original drawings, and the image flows to the edge of the paper with no border. The upscaling allows the viewer “to see” the individual figures in the crowd more clearly; and the brush marks are more decipherable.
