Adrian Eckersley

I first learned about painting more as criticism and history than as a practice. I studied Literature at university and followed a respectable career path teaching this to adults. I paint to help make sense of the world. I believe that most of the time we are strangers, to ourselves and where we live. I paint the city and its hinterlands, which turn out to be the places we pass through every day but do not see, full of voids and energies we sense without much grasp of what is there. I have been exhibiting, solo, with small groups, and in larger often themed shows, usually in London and the south east, since around 2000. At first I painted motorways and malls, lonely and alien spaces; now I paint public spaces, lonely crowds, visions of cities, often at night, transit spaces, or spaces that are nowhere in particular. My subject is London but that does not exclude other cities

Alice Perse Clarke

Alice makes colourful paintings of small pot plants; the nature we bring into our homes. The designs are reminiscent of stained glass windows: by drawing a link between worship and nature she celebrates our love of the natural world.

Andrew Lee

I have always drawn and painted but I trained as a graphic designer. My practice embraces both these categories, as well as both two and three dimensional work. The medium used depends upon the subject I am investigating. This often involves examining how a subject can be most simply represented. I am currently breaking down traditional portrait painting into pictograms of a face and looking at how a gold frame can be indicated. Much of my work involves found objects and upcycling. Natural subjects are often used as I've had a lifelong fascination with birds and their nests in particular. It is also a spin-off from my conservation volunteering and materials I have salvaged. But I tend to work on diverse projects at the same time and my output is hard to categorise. My studio allows me to keep the plates spinning!

Angela Britton

Angela Britton is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in London and runs 'The Daily Dream' from her studio in Tottenham, selling prints and accessories based on her designs. Her background in design lends a graphic and illustrative tilt to her work - be it organic or geometric. A degree in History of Art & Philosophy has also provided inspiration - from Egyptian art, Bauhaus to Deco; vivid and symbolic images really spark her imagination. Most of her work is drawn in pencil, pen and gouache initially, then often enhanced digitally before being printed or silk screened.

Anne Adamson

My work is about journeys through imagined spaces. Some of the images reveal figures en route to an unknown destination; others depict places that, while apparently uninhabited, suggest an earlier human presence through a discarded object or an abandoned structure. I work in oil and acrylic as well as making ink drawings.

I studied Art History at Trinity College, Dublin, and Fine Art at UWE, Bristol, and at Wimbledon, University of the Arts, London. I have won several awards for my work and exhibit regularly in the UK and abroad.

Benjamin Phillips

I create large-scale, mixed-media compositions on handmade wooden panels. With my interest in the contemporary urban landscape I look to connect seemingly disparate ideas through form and materials. Many of the collage elements in my works are culled directly from the streets of London. Where I incorporates these ephemera into the work to create a contemporary abstraction.

Berfîn Çiçek

Berfîn Çiçek (b.1991) is a British Kurdish artist from North London.

“We do not suffer from conflict, but from being able to bear too little conflict. By not being able to straddle the contradictions, to keep all the voices in play, to sustain the drama by stopping it from turning into a perpetual soliloquy” – Adam Phillips, British essayist and Psychoanalyst.

"EC’s work handles conflicting ideas, a crashing of elements that could mechanistically retain their boundaries; oppositions that instead are complexly interpenetrating and actually related, occupying cusps or on the verge of collapse. As well as being a visual exploration – space, imbalance, complexity, matter and things falling apart – this (visual) metaphor perhaps relates to his ideas about human experience and cognition as being part of something whole and combinatorial rather than the splitting of human experience, cognition and expression into hierarchical modes of thinking or structures (“Descartes’ Error”). 

EC works with the idea that opposition is necessary to life, to something integral and vital. She is interested in accessing (visual) babble and incoherent visual ‘utterances’ in order to approach or retrieve something unknown as opposed to relying on assertions and “branding”. There is no clear ‘aboutness’. Material floats in a someplace in between that cannot quite be named.

EC feels and thinks that incoherence is something that has perhaps not been given enough regard or respect. It is frowned upon in our field it seems (yet is valued elsewhere. Indeed it is vital to getting at the “truth”). This approach can lead to work that presents us with schisms or something that is difficult to “get a handle on”, possibly work that also belongs to “the category of the ugly”. We need not “only” examine this visually (as if visual experience is isolated in a vacuum), nor as something purely non relational. The artist inevitably looks at layers of potential meaning and experiences the work through many lenses"

Geoff Gunby

 I grew up in a small town next to the sea, an experience which has affected me profoundly. the effect of the clear bright light picking out every detail on the faces of the people all around me and of the tawdry seafront building s towering over me as a child has stayed with me all my life and set the basic template for the artwork I have gone on to produce.I like to paint people and things as they are in all their itness, strangeness and complexity and to try and express the uniqueness of their being, what it is that makes them what they are to me. Long experience of staring at album covers had led me to embrace pop , or rather faux pop, art as a means of embracing failure. I particularly enjoy painting portraits and actively seek commissions.

Helge Nordlie

I work mainly with acrylic paint, but also using other media in combination or on its own - ink, pastel, charcoal and collage. My themes are basically abstract, exploring shapes, colour and lines to explore and express ideas or emotions from within.

I moved from Oslo, Norway, to London in 2000, after nineteen years as a prop master/prop maker at the national opera house.

Alongside my job, I was painting and drawing. I continued this practice in London over the last twenty years, being involved in the Artscope project at Haringey Day Opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and autism. I ran regular art workshops with clients over these years. I was also involved in a project combining gardening and artworks, various stage productions and celebrations; providing design, decor and technical solutions.

I am now retired from my day job and focus extensively on my work as an independent artist.

I did my formal art education in Norway:
One year fundamental college course in Arts and Crafts.
One-year fundamental college course in Drama and Music.

Josefina Isaza

Informed by a love of nature and fine details, London-based Colombian ceramic artist Josefina Isaza’s sculptures have highly visual and tactile surfaces. They demonstrate how visual stimuli can be expressed by grouping together single elements to form a larger Gestalt whole, as reflected in nature.

Judy Clarkson

Judy Clarkson is a figurative artist who works in oil on canvas. Through this traditional medium she aims to convey a contemporary vision. The subjects of her paintings are depicted with banal objects such as mirrors or high-heeled shoes. However the compositions are disconcerting, the figures seemingly in the throes of extraordinary moments or lost in impenetrable thoughts. Shoes become gloves and reflections take on a sensual, almost conspiratorial significance. These people are poised in abeyance: their lives are structured around these props, yet somehow they are dissatisfied, seeking authenticity.

Clarkson's choice of oil on canvas, links directly back to art as practised through the centuries. For her painting is a physical and tactile experience. The surface is intensely worked, the paint knotting into thick layers in places to become almost 3 dimensional. While the overall effect is realistic, seen closely the paint takes on a complex, abstract appearance, skeins of paint retaining brush marks as if still in motion.

Julie Turner

Julie’s work reflects her preoccupation with the significance of early childhood experiences, in particular those of maternal deprivation and loss. She works with rust and natural plant dyes to change the surface quality of fabric and to convey meaning. Her work is often in the form of faceless dolls and unwearable dresses. Through her work and installations Julie hopes to evoke an emotional response in the viewer.

Kaori Jones

Her theme is about the impermanence of all things. She also has been interested in are human thoughts and behaviours. She is exploring how she can intervene in the destructive conflict between natural and human-made objects through the process of repairing and restorations. She uses found objects from nature and recycling materials. This work is open-ended, unplanned and untimely. Her creative practice includes sculpture, installation, painting, print and jewellery making.

Laurence Glazier

Some say new music is atonal, or electronic. But the former is a hundred years old, and the latter fifty. I say, forget the classifications of new or old. The destiny of all modern art is to become the art noveau of the future. My music is mostly figurative, in that it is as accurate a rendition of inspiration as possible within a supporting structure.

Louise Sunnucks

Within her multi-disciplinary practice, drawing and painting play a central role. She employs different media in her painting such as oils, acrylics and wax to construct a delicate sense of surface. Paint is applied in layers, one surface building from another, while transparent wax and glazes reflect the temporality of the subject matter. In her graphite and charcoal drawings, she both applies and erases the material, in a process of removal as addition, using mark making as a tool to explore physical memory through materials. The accumulated information is collated and flattened into a compressed picture plane in order to fossilise memory. These processes result in an openended and more abstracted response rather than a literalised one. Louise returned to full time education and graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2013. She has collaborated in several group shows and had her first solo show in 2019 at the Kaleidoscope Gallery in Kent and exhibited with fellow artists at the Green & Stone Gallery in London in 2019.

Mada Vicassiau

Mada Vicassiau is a French artist based in East London. Drawing on her formal training at the Ecole nationale supérieure d’arts de Cergy - Paris, Mada’s work is driven by the exploration of visual elements: colour, form and space. Influenced by the modernist tradition with a minimal aesthetic, her approach is a subtle investigation into the effect of light on perception and plays with the contrast between the organic versus the abstract geometric. For over a decade, Mada’s practice has explored spatial occupation while working for the fashion industry; she worked 9 years for Ralph Lauren. Since then, she combines her diverse set of skills with MVBS studio, an interior design studio she founded in 2016.

She looks for issues of a social or political nature that fire her energy and passions.

Following these issues she documents the situations as they happen. She prefers to tell the story as she understands by putting together a series of images, rather than relying on one single image.

Mia Wilkinson

Through my work I create compositions of the ‘female’ body forming narratives from original collages, drawings and paint. My paintings explore proximity and entanglement embodying current emotional (and subconsciously personal) values about the female body and status in a current media culture. Despite their commodification and abjection these performers powerfully return the objectifying gaze of the viewer, with humour and powerful resilience.    Purposely provocative, blurring the boundary between actual and virtual appearance. My depictions of the female form are an exploration of this malleable line, using the joyous, exaggerated and sometimes grotesque portrayals of the female body as a method of challenging male objectification and reconfiguring the male gaze. Sometimes resembling excrement, sometimes ice cream, the deliciously repulsive bodies of the women in my paintings are sculpted by their environment and the animals or cherubic figures that surround them.    The figures I paint morph into bizarre avatars, uncertain of their identity and driven by ludicrous compulsions. Humour is a vital essence in the work; the paintings are brimming with ribald narratives, creating claustrophobic scenarios, which topple onto the space of the viewer, creating a pantomime of entangled bodies, in surreal, burlesque oppositions. There is an ambiguity of dominance and submission, jostling the norms of classical painting, from Rubens to Delacroix, to attempt to find where a contemporary female painter can belong. The work aims to seduce, as well as unmasking social absurdities and satirise gender stereotypes.  During the pandemic I challenged myself to produce a ‘drawing a day’ – unplanned and with no limitations. I scrolled through social media and drew with urgency and produced an organic collage of drawings. Using the frustrations, fear and sometimes euphoria of being trapped in a lockdown, yet also being forced to slow down - perhaps embrace the ability to enjoy the worst of the unknown. Currently I have been painting these drawings and exploring their outcome.

I've worked extensively with community arts organisations, youth services, schools, charities, museums and archives as well as the private sector devising projects and workshops for all ages and abilities.

Patrick Jones

Patrick Jones's practice often revolves around the tension between 2-D 'confinement' and 3-D spatiality. Using soft materials, such as fabric, paper and latex, these ideas become actualised in performative acts that transform the work from 2-D to 3-D and back. His process often begins with an exploration of physical materials and their temporal properties, such as latex and stone. Material things often manifest through his sculptural and painterly research, as performative props within film and photography. His recent fascination with the seemingly disparate ideas of entropy and the baroque aims to explore and challenge the social and bodily turmoil we find ourselves in.

  Patrick originally trained as a scientist and has a BA in chemistry and PhD in theoretical physics. He recently completed a graduate diploma at the Royal College of art in fine art and is currently undertaking an MA in sculpture at the RCA.

Peter Suchin

My paintings are made through an extensive process of working and reworking the material surface of the canvas or board. Apparently “abstract”, these pieces in fact operate between representation and abstraction, convention and chaos, the fragment and the whole. The viewer’s role – and serious responsibility – is to complete the work.

Petra Williams

My work researches relationships through painting the human condition, space, loss and nature. My recent work is focusing on the human body. The source material involves mixed perspectives coming from collages of drawings , memory and life drawing”

Much of her practice has explored plaster in it’s handling of applying and stripping it from the canvas, then reapplying oil, which she feels draws her nearer to humanity with it’s colours darkness and light, and the use of blank canvas as a void or negative space. Since living in France she immersed herself in the language and culture. She has exhibited in group exhibitions there and has had a solo show. In 2015 she moved to London, England and has based her work from her studio in North London now Gaunson Studios.

Raymond Isaac

The inspiration for my collages comes from my travels in the built up urban environment. My collages overlap images from mass media that are juxtaposed to form a new visual language.

Sophie Graham-Wood

I am a self-taught artist based primarily in London and, as much as possible, down on the north Devon coast.  I have recently completed two one-year long courses at the Newlyn School of Art in Cornwall which have expanded my practice immeasurably. Inspired by the coast, landscape and more recently, figures, I paint primarily in acrylic. Memory and intuition often inform my work where I may start with loose, gestural mark-making, embracing “happy accidents” and then teasing out an image and onto the surface.  Relatively early on in my creative journey, I am constantly looking at new and exciting ways to create work, working on a variety of different surfaces and with different mediums.

Stella O
