Gilead Limor, June 5th – July 2nd 2023
From his early teens, Gilead has embraced the world of art as a multi-discipline artist, as a teenager simultaneously immersing into the surreal with a series of watercolour artworks, sketches and line art creations while composing and recording original rock, electronic and avant-garde music, rendering architectural visualisations, perfecting the art of photography and acquiring darkroom skills.
Though much of his 20s and 30s were devoted to music production and the performing arts, Gilead returned to focus on visual art and photography towards the end of the 90s, focusing on architecture, nature and street photography. This is an area which still occupies a fair degree of his artistic attention today. In 2012, Gilead began to explore the nude form, initially collaborating with life modelling collectives such as Spirited Bodies, and also working with individual models and groups to create photographic tableaux. This resulted in three distinct collections of works: Do You See Me? (2012), Organism (2014) and A Look at Ourselves (2016-2022). Gilead continues to explore the nude form both in photographic art and fine art, using pencil, charcoal and ink for the latter.
A late adopter to acrylic painting, Gilead first began to explore this medium in 2019, initially exploring the subject of walls. Since 2022, under the guidance of art teacher and curator Ronald O’Neal Best RCA, Gilead has developed a distinct style, and has produced a series of paintings on a variety of subjects, including the works on display at this exhibition. Gilead is associated with the Portobello Group of Artists and regularly exhibits in group exhibitions organised by Notting Hill Visual Arts and the Westway Trust.

Roberta Brasola, 4th – 26th April 2023
Roberta Brasola was born in Padua, Italy, in 1992, and is London based since 2012; abstract expressionism artist with a unique self-taught spraying, dripping, pouring and spreading paint technique. It’s controlled yet casual. Not a single painting can be reproduced twice.
Roberta’s work can be viewed as a study of contrasts of black and white; the interplay of control and precision versus serendipity that evolves and mutates into a free expression of emotion splashed dripped or poured on the canvas also in brilliant displays of colours and forms.
Contrasted backgrounds create depth and perspective in her abstract work, but with an almost hyper-realistic definition in which Roberta transmits a vibrancy of motion and fluidity onto her paintings; bursts of colour and black lines that result in happy accidents where proportionality and constraint give way to the actual experience of freedom created by the artist and experienced by the viewer. Drippings, brushstrokes, sprayed paint and various effects, monochromatic or colourful done with a surprising assuredness of execution, without a trace of hesitation, coexist on a same surface creating a rich universe, one that is organic, rhythmic and alive.
Initially inspired by experiments with spray paint and pure ink on canvas surfaces, Roberta’s intention throughout her various recent series of abstract works has remained the same, yet always innovative to capture and freeze a vibrant and colorful moment of her feelings and life experiences in time and space.
Roberta consistently expresses her passionate and inquisitive character in her abstract paintings in the simplest way, spontaneous works that push the bounds of creativity with experimentation, brilliant colors and striking forms. In summary she is visceral, striking and powerful, living and organic, guided by the love and bond of her family.
Her subject is feelings that are coming from the daily life, in particular deep love and inexpressible emotions. All of these powerful emotions we have hidden somewhere inside of us, for example if we feel gratitude, joy, peace or love mixed with the fear and restlessness that can sometimes overwhelm and overtake our days moods and minds.
She wants to inspire people to feel and express their emotions any way possible more and more.

Apply to exhibit your work at OneStonegrove
To apply to exhibit at OneStonegrove, please complete the form below. Please read the additional information and terms below.
Additional information and terms
All works would need to be in frames or able to be hung on our rail system. We have space to display 15-20 pieces of hanging art (each up to A3). If your work is different sizes, please let me know, and we can measure how many pieces would fit.
Hanging your work is free. However, we have 3 options to consider:
- A minimum of 10% on any sales to support the community artists’ program.
- A discussion about offering a workshop or some community involvement/volunteering.
- A one off donation for our charity.
A private preview evening/event can be organised for friends, family and the community. There may be an extra cost for this.
We would like some information about your work and yourself to display alongside the exhibition. We will require a photo headshot and 250 words explaining you and your work.
Whilst we will take all possible care to ensure your artwork is safe and well looked after while it is with us, exhibitors must understand we are a community space, open to the public, and so leaving work on display is at the artist’s own risk. We recommend that artists have their own insurance to cover possible theft or accidental damage.
We can arrange a suitable day for hanging work, so staff are able to support as much as possible. When putting up and taking down your work it is once again your responsibility to leave the hanging system neat and clear of any remaining cord, and also to clear excess rubbish/packaging etc. so the area is left clean for the incoming artists.
Please email email@example.com for more details.
