‘Top dealers from London and across the UK gather at Saatchi Gallery once a year to present the very best Modern British and Contemporary art and tell visitors all about the artists, their work and give specialist advice on collecting. Galleries are installed throughout all three storeys of Saatchi Gallery, London, creating an elegant museum-like atmosphere for the fair’ – Artlyst
‘The paintings of the Immigrants were inspired by the epic painting the ‘Raft of Medusa’ by Theodore Gericault, a tragic story of a shipwreck from the 1818/19, which hangs in the Louvre, and contemporary photographs from the internet of immigrants fleeing their homes with nothing but their lives. The images have such similarities despite them being 200 years apart, it fills me with compassion and makes me wonder what their lives and stories they have left behind are’.
– Rebecca Scott, 2022.
