The London Arts Board, where 'Grey Sigh' is currently displayed

Still studying painting at Central Saint Martins, Adam Ralph brings solid structures aggressively out of simple pen lines. He makes forms that bulge uncomfortably, pregnant with a dark menace and a simmering sexuality.

His drawing Grey Sigh is currently on display at The London Arts Board, a disused municipal notice board on the corner of Peckham Road and Vestry Road, Camberwell.It is now a gallery dedicated to giving emerging artists the chance to have a solo exhibition in London.

This is open and free to view, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until 14 September

Ralph says of his drawings:

Using abstract forms I’m trying to create my own wholly coherent visual language and create tight, controlled drawings with an element of chance or randomness. 
I’ve read a lot about gardening these last few weeks. Looking at the way in which people cultivate gardens has proved an interesting parallel to the nature of control in my work – a constant struggle to make perfectly-controlled wildness.”
