Mark Shields : The Sealed Book: Visionary Heads

24 February - 11 March 2022

Grosvenor Gallery is delighted to announce its upcoming exhibition, ‘The Sealed Book: Visionary Heads’, New works by Mark Shields. The exhibition will be on display at the gallery from 24 February - 11 March 2022.


Shortlisted for the 2021 Trinity Buoy wharf drawing prize with his drawings 'Seer' and 'Sybil', the current body of works represent the complete series made directly after. Suggestive of the rich depth of mezzotints, these new works on paper were created after a series of small but turbulent non-representational watercolour and gouache works made at the beginning of 2021, in response to the tangible threats of climate change, pandemic and global unease.
