START, presented by Prudential, is an art fair held at Saatchi Gallery, London. The fair shines a spotlight on emerging artists and emerging art scenes. The second edition of the fair runs from 10th to 13th September 2015.

It takes place across all three floors of the Saatchi Gallery, and with events that range from dinners to talks to a Gala Charity Auction, is aimed to enable London's collectors, curators and critics to discover new artistic talent. START takes the concept of the art fair out of its usual locations and situates it within a museum-quality space, allowing the best possible presentation of the participating galleries and artists.

START was a key component of the Prudential Eye Programme bringing the curatorial expertise of that Programme into the art fair. The Programme focuses on enabling emerging artists to show their work on the international stage and to showcase new art scenes in a way that is accessible to a wider audience.

"Exposure to new collectors, affordable booths and the chance to build emerging artists' CVs drew exhibitors to London's newest art fair…and the children of established collectors were buying." 

-Gareth Harris and Anny Shaw, The Art Newspaper, July-August 2014

"One can only welcome the initiative [START]…Exhibitors have been given generous spaces, which makes for a very pleasing meandering... The small number of galleries feels particularly refreshing."

-Coline Milliard, Artnet.com, 27 June 2014



Jonny Green  solo exhibition at Carter Presents London will  run through September and October 2015



Jonny Green's intense paintings of sculptures, crudely made with plasticine, bits of string and such are gritty and grubby They are .ugly subjects of distressed objects. Metaphoric manifestations of the poor and the down trodden, the neglected. The inconsequentiality of the subjects and almost banality of the scenes belie more circumspect thinking about our own sense of value and mortality "nature mort in essence and execution". recreated in dexterous and skillful paint handling. using the traditional still life to re imagine and explore meaning. painting past and what painting can be today. This body of work encapsulates the zeitgeist of painting today. Jonny Green explains this approach as ‘an attempt to dignify and document or give testament to something that seemingly lacks dignity or a voice’.
Jonny Green's paintings exploring subjectivity, meaning, candour and humour are skillfull deliberated and  constructed.  The paintings  are physical, fresh and of the moment. Jonny Green is a London based emerging artist who's work is poised for wider exposure and  greater recognition  which is why Carter Presents is presenting Jonny Green in  the solo project at Start art fair 2015.
