The Gillian Jason Gallery is one of the most respected and influential art advisors, curators and dealers with a deep legacy in promoting female artists. Gillian Jason, a former ballerina, founded her eponymous gallery from her home in a house in Camden Town in 1982. Gillian began to explore and collect work by female artists and realised a need to champion their work. Following her retirement, Gillian passed the mantle to her daughter, Elli, and granddaughter, Millie. With three generations of Gillian Jason Gallery continues its legacy created by the founding matriarch to promote the work of female and non-binary artists.
What We See features eight internationally recognised and emerging female artists, exploring the theme of identity and examining life through a female gaze. What We See can be viewed through the gallery’s new 3D Virtual Reality space, allowing users to explore the environment and interact with the artwork from any device, anywhere and anytime. Artists include BP Portrait Prize Winners Jiab Prachakul (2020), Emma Hopkins (2019 Young Artist), and Ania Hobson (2018), as well as the internationally renowned Chinese-born Sougwen Chung whose work is deeply rooted in AI technology and robotics. Other artists include Alina Zamanova, Yulia Bas, Nancy Cadogan and British sculptor Sadie Clayton.
