Gentleman's Game

Gentleman’s Game is a partnership of artists, Brandon Friend and Jason Douglas Griffin. In their signature technique, Friend and Griffin collaborate and create works by combining mixed-media that is unlike any other. Gentleman’s Game has a unique process of turn-based mark making that results in arresting pieces rich with depth and texture. This process employs various methodologies rooted in painting, printmaking, collage, drawing and image transfer. Each mark on the canvas, whether unintentional or deliberate, forces the painting into a new context that is non-linear and shifting. The emergence of recognizable images or gestures is intended to provoke a sense of familiarity that echoes throughout the works. Gentleman’s Game provides an aesthetic that explores themes in pop culture and mythology, which seamlessly fuses together a partnership built on individual approach, mutual respectively, trust, and fair play.
