RampArts Exhibition - Greg Paton


This is a new exhibition from RampArts Jersey's latest artist, Greg Paton.

Greg started making abstract art 5 months ago and has been growing as an artist ever since. He has taken inspiration for his artwork from all over the world. Whilst living in Barcelona, for instance, he was inspired by the street art, modern art galleries and architecture everywhere you look. 

He loves to paint on cardboard and views the process of using the material a little bit like recycling. 

Greg's artwork will be on display at the Arts Centre bar gallery from the 17th of October and will be running for approximately 1 month. 

Greg said: "I’m really grateful that Ramparts reached out to me to display some of my artwork for the coming month, it’s without a doubt the biggest opportunity I’ve had in terms of reaching people who may not necessarily use Instagram or TikTok, and I’m excited that it has presented itself to me early on. Please feel free to pop in, have a browse and let me know what you think!"

Joanna Krawczyk Exhibition 


This ArtHouse Jersey exhibition features work from Polish Photographer and filmmaker Joanna Krawczyk. 

Krawczyk studied the works and life of Claude Cahun, who lived in Jersey from 1937, whilst at the Academy of Art in Szczecin, and the exhibition is inspired by the works of Cahun as a result. Specifically, she was influenced by Cahuns use of gender play, form, social hierarchy, performativity and identity. 

Joanna Krawczyk said: “ I was looking forward to visiting Jersey, the Island where Claude Cahun lived and created for many years. The residency at Arthouse Jersey is an excellent opportunity for me to continue my research and further develop video work." 

The exhibition opens on the 18 of October at Greve de Lecq Barracks. It will be open between 10:00 and 17:00 each day.
