OPEN HOUSES 2019 - prints

Anna Woodward

Battersea/Nine Elms

81

Anna Woodward's work explores the subject of transcribing Greek mythological classical paintings while using her unique style of working. She is interested in and inspired by Greek mythology for its dramatic tales, rich in detail and extravagances.

Within her practice, she is interested in the colouring of these classical paintings and the structure. She works in breaking down the formal qualities through the use of colourblocking in watercolour; this helps the image to become abstracted. From here, she works back into the painting, defining detail in her own patterned style. Watercolour and oil layers are added to create a complex maze of shapes, juxtaposing transcription and decorative surface painting. Anna strives to create the feeling that the painting is taking over the image.

In the summer of 2019, Anna Woodward set up Artisan Space in Putney. Artisan Space is an artist-run gallery space located in the basement of Artisan and Vine, an artisan wine shop and deli on the Lower Richmond Road. Artisan Space is managed and curated by Anna, who is currently studying her BA Fine Art degree at City and Guilds London Art School and lives in Putney. Through the space, Anna hopes to curate shows featuring a wide range of artists, who vary in working style and age, and host a range of classes for artists of all abilities. The aim is to grow the artistic community within SW15 and to the wider areas. Artisan Space also offers a fantastic space for phenomenal private views; with the combination of the wide selection of boutique wines available, artists are able to take the opportunity to showcase their work in a more affordable and accessible way.

Artisan and Vine has a wide selection of wines and deli products to enjoy while you take the opportunity to view some art or take part in a life drawing class. Artisan Space is open from 12-8pm daily, and private views and life classes are available until 10pm. Life drawing classes take place weekly on Wednesdays from 7-9pm - check out www.instagram.com/social_drawsw15 and www.instagram.com/artisanspacesw15 for more information.

Alice Morgan

Southfields/Wandsworth Town

37

I love finding visual interest in the things that surround us in our lives: onions, garlic, chillis and figs in my kitchen, fish from the market in Normandy. It's no accident that most of the works I've sold have ended up on kitchen or dining room walls because food is definitely a feature, but I'm also very inspired by the wild flowers I see on countryside walks. In fact, cowslips and wild fennel have been a big thing for me this year.

I like to simplify what I see into stylised forms that lend themselves to the sort of printmaking I do. People have been kind enough to say that I have an eye for composition, which - if true - certainly helps to support the overall visual impact. Last year was my first WAOH. I loved the experience and am looking forward to it again this year.

Please note, I'm not opening the first weekend - just October 12 and 13. As I did last year, I will be donating a percentage of my profits to Project Harar.

Cancelled: Sarah’s Art

Southfields/Wandsworth Town

THIS OPEN HOUSE IS CANCELLED. Having run a professional art studio creating innovative designs for textiles, Sarah Donlan now focuses on producing her artwork in her own distinct style. She will be displaying and selling an array of her work in various mediums such as acrylics, mixed media, watercolours and inks on different formats from sketches to large-scale works; some of these will also be available as prints and other products.

With a passion for teaching, Sarah runs art classes for young budding artists. With Sarah teaching the fundamentals with a focus on building a love and knowledge of art, a large skillset of techniques and materials to produce a finished piece, the kids find this really rewarding. Many of the children choose to take their passion for art into senior school, even applying for scholarships. You will be able to see and buy Sarah’s work as well as an array of her students' creations.

Sarah will be holding a FREE natural and organic workshop on both Saturday afternoons from 4 – 5pm. She hopes to see young artists wanting to get involved!

Naked Ape (Jules Bleckman)

Putney/Roehampton

14

I have been fascinated recently with the difference between us and our close ancestor the chimpanzee, how animalistic humans are and why we think we are more than just animal – the stories we tell ourselves to make us feel superior. I like the idea that the main difference between us is how much we can dread and depressingly question our existence rather than live in the moment.

My main theme is escapism and, in my belief, a modern addiction to escaping: how the simulation of life is more pleasant than the reality. In this I took inspiration from the ideas of Jean Baudrillard, particularly in simulacra and simulations. I was also inspired by Mark Fisher's ideas about the stalling of the future, technology and the concepts of nostalgia — in particular 1980s nostalgia — and how we prefer to look back rather than forward.

I want to look at the mundane side of life such as working a 9-5 job, and how we do this just to be able to afford to escape, i.e buy a new TV, and take this concept from the American dream and the rise of capitalism and consumerism, especially.

I thought the print of the chimp figure trying to meditate was a particularly interesting concept and a contemporary idea worth investigating. In this work I look at the figure meditating as another form of escape for the chimp (just like avoiding work and watching TV). Misguided spirituality is more and more of an issue nowadays. I seek to contrast all this with the fact that we are just evolved monkeys and that makes all these ideas and thoughts seem quite ridiculous, which I find pretty funny.

Printmaker Mike Hullis

Tooting/Furzedown

75

Mike Hullis is interested in the beauty created through decay and the wearing down that belongs to the natural order; the decline into disorder and apparent randomness; the transition and degeneration into nothingness in the natural world. His work studies the dynamic forces beyond the control of man: the beauty of the transition of mountains into sand and the results of the geophysical forces that are nature's work.

Mike tries to translate his emotional response to these great and often unseen forces, such as the magnetic effect of the moon on the ocean’s tides and the wearing down that takes place where the land meets the sea - a mostly uncontrolled space where nature is raw and supreme.

His early work was in clay, a material that is literally of the earth and one that allows for spontaneity. From making mud pies as a child, it has always given him immense satisfaction to touch and manipulate this material. Over the last few years his practice has evolved through drawing with pencils and graphite powder, to more recently an exploration concentrated on mono typing, its randomness and the opportunity it affords to experiment with colour.

It was a visit to the wilderness of the Suffolk coast that reconnected him with the breathtaking and absorbing vastness of a place where nature is in control and where we are bit players on the edge. He reimagines his emotional response to being in this space by working with simple materials, sometimes collecting debris from the beach to inform, often using it in the work in a subliminal way.

Eileen and Bruce St Julian-Bown

Putney/Roehampton

28

Eileen St Julian-Bown's silkscreen prints draw on a broad spectrum of influences. Scenes reflecting the chaos of commuting, the fantasy of the circus and the frozen moments of daily routine are blended to create uniquely involving images. Her prints are often included in the Royal Society of British Artists, Mall Gallery exhibitions.

Honed as an advertising art director, Bruce St Julian-Bown's photography seeks the emotion that his landscapes exude and which he finds deeply moving. Nonetheless, he is agile in capturing opportunistic images of unexpected and intriguing scenes.

Juli Fejer

Southfields/Wandsworth Town

35

I am a self-taught artist based in London and East Anglia. I was brought up in Wimbledon village, in a house filled with colour and design, but life took me in other directions. Fibromyalgia cut short a career in marketing and for decades I struggled with chronic pain and depression.

Last year I started painting again after a break of 40 years. I began to post my work on Facebook and later Instagram, then began selling it. An NHS pain management course at St George’s Hospital boosted my confidence. My pictures of living with chronic pain and the experience of the course are now on display in the Phoenix centre at the hospital.

I paint in watercolour and acrylics, sometimes on paper, sometimes on canvas. I love experimenting with different media. I also make giclée prints from my digital artwork. My art is based on my emotional response to what I encounter in day-to-day life in South West London. I am inspired by nature and mostly paint landscapes. Earlier this year, one of my pictures was highly commended in the Leisure Painter Open Art Competition.

At my Open House you will find pictures of the Thames, Wimbledon Common and Wandsworth Park, along with work inspired by recent visits to the Sussex and Norfolk coasts. I enjoy working on commissions.

Her 2018 art installation 'On the Distaff Side', shown during London Ultra exhibition in Bargehouse (the Oxo Tower), was awarded honourable mention. The installation consisted of over forty old weaving shuttles, threads and photographs and symbolised the family tree. 'Independent', another of Elżbieta's installations, won third prize at the Art Competition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Polish Independence.

Her latest installation 'Healing Powers' was shown during The Waterloo Festival curated by Almuth Tebbenhoff. Elżbieta Smoleńska also showed her screen prints in a group show 'Approaches' in D-Contemporary gallery, which participated in the Mayfair Art Weekend.

Intimate Traces – Kelly Mosquera

Battersea/Nine Elms

81

A series that depicts the emergence of alter egos within music artists like Jhene Aiko and Jermaine Cole. The study of the two is the foundation of the subject topic, where I begin to explore the reasoning behind the existence of alter egos and how they are used in extending themselves rather than in replacement of themselves.

Looking at lyricism has been crucial in trying to create the sound pictures these music artists paint for us. My work returns to what it once was, a form of self-expression, the same way music holds its value too. Social attitudes also hold a purpose in my work with such lack of appreciation and attention music is given in depth.

Michelangelo and Bill Viola are a major influence in exploring such sensitive aspects of life and projecting these through intimate drawings, film and projections. Roberto Ferri’s influence comes from his strong references and symbols within his paintings.

I am considering the delicacy of graphite on paper, removing the idea of impermanence, along with sculpture, and the intimate connection held between the maker and sitter. As well how sculptures/statues made from stone become delicate, there lays a sense of time with consideration to the process of works by hand.
