Sartorial Contemporary Art is pleased to celebrate the launch of Jasper Joffe's first novel "Water"
with a show of 34 artists.
Water , the story of young British artist Nathaniel Water's rise to the top & disasters
in love and marriage, is published by Telegram Books. Water is illuminated with drawings by the author.

Jasper asked 34 artists to make a piece of work pretending to be Nathaniel Water. Each artist was given a page
from the book and asked to be Water at the time of the page they were given. The resulting exhibition
offers a parallel narrative to the novel and also celebrates the messing of the boundaries between life and art.

About Water : "Nathaniel Water is a young British artist, restless and neurotic, self-obsessed, preening and hilarious.
While his career is burgeoning, his love life is descending into an ever-deepening hole. He proposes marriage
to his glamorous Slovak girlfriend, Jelena, with whom he fights continuously. They soon part company. Water then meets
Harriet, Jelena's antithesis, and marries her instead. Both women become pregnant at different stages; he leaves each
of them at least once, and deserts both when they most need him."

Matthew Collings says of Water : "the frivolity of a youthful modern-times columnist in the culture section of one of
the Sundays, combined with sort of egotistical nastiness and a sad interest in the crappier aspects of the art world
somehow results in a page-turner."

Jasper Joffe is a painter and novelist. He studied Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. He completed
an MA in painting at The Royal College of Art in London and received a scholarship to the British School at Rome, where
he spent nine months. He has had solo exhibitions in London , Rome , Milan and Brno ; his work is also in the
Saatchi collection. He lives in London .
