Emma Gibson Jewellery

Tooting/Furzedown

65

Jewellery collection handmade in silver, brass and semi-precious stones. One-off contemporary pieces created using a variety of traditional and experimental techniques, including folding, forging and casting. I work mainly in silver, but make some pieces using brass and mixed materials for a change of look, colour or mood. All my jewellery is designed to reflect the wearer's personality and style, whether to make a bold statement or to be worn as a comfortable, everyday piece.

A selection of distinctive earrings, necklaces, pins, cuffs, bangles, brooches, rings and cufflinks will be on display. Come and try a bold silver cuff, some simple wearable earrings, or perhaps a ring you never want to take off.

Coffee, cake or a cup of tea will be here to welcome you too!

Wendy Hallam and Graham Wood

Southfields/Wandsworth Town

54

Wendy works with graphite, ink and paint mainly on paper and canvas. She experiments with various techniques and media and works from imagination and observation in both a figurative and abstract way Her work is diverse but fundamentally what she is trying to achieve is a truth - an essence perhaps - of what she sees and the magic and spontaneity of a moment. Wendy studied at Sir John Cass in London where she obtained a degree in fine art and with Maggi Hambling at Morley College.

Graham is a mainly figurative artist, specialising in nudes and portraits, with a spattering of animals and landscapes. He is currently on a mission to capture light on paper.

Louis Morel

Putney/Roehampton

29

Hello, I’m Louis Morel. Sadly, my reality is quite limited and absurdly painful but my fantasies bring me unending joy. I have fybromylgia, autism and severe sensory over sensitivity, meaning I’m pretty much housebound and in extreme pain constantly. Ever since I could remember I’ve always used imaginary worlds and drawing to help me cope with the pain. I won’t be able to explore the outside world, but at least I can explore my imaginary ones.

I haven’t had any sort of traditional arts education, as because of my disabilities I couldn’t attend art school or attend any lessons but I’ve spent years drawing non-stop and I hope I’m good at it. I didn’t think I’d ever be able to have a job because of my disabilities, but I have a chance to have one in being an artist which is just insanely amazing to me. Life’s hard, but I’m going to give it my best shot!

Putney School of Art and Design, Oxford Road, SW15 2LQ
Ken McCalla

Tooting/Furzedown

60

Since completing a Fine Arts BA degree in 1984 at Central School of Art and Design I’ve looked to improve my skill in visual communication. I use a wide range of mediums to create art that opens up and excites an audience with ideas based on energies uniting. Drawing on my rich cultural heritage, my artwork explores personal growth and celebrates harmony. Visit my website (www.yahwarts.co.uk) to view more artworks and for more information.

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.

Stella Tooth (Resident Artist at Half Moon Putney)

Putney/Roehampton

18

Performers inspire me, both on the street and in venues, and through them I explore themes of separation and connection, seeking to blur the boundaries between illustration and fine art.

I’m Resident Artist at The Half Moon Putney, and am proud to be part of the revival of one of the capital’s longest running and world-renowned live music venues, synonymous with The Rolling Stones, where, since the early 1960s, some of the biggest names in popular music have performed. I find myself in very good company as music residencies have included Elvis Costello and Steve Marriott of the Small Faces. Artist residencies allow individuals to explore their practice within another community.

As a trained portrait artist and drawing tutor at the National Portrait Gallery, V&A, Tate Britain and The Courtauld for Sketchout, I seek to capture the creative energy of many of the Half Moon’s best loved acts — from regulars like Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band, Hank Wangford and Dr Feelgood to tribute bands such as the Rollin' Stoned and Absolute Bowie to relative newcomers like Catfish. And then of course there's the thrill of capturing old hands like Pink Floyd's Nick Mason inaugurate his new supergroup, the Saucerful of Secrets, at the iconic music venue. A percentage of all sales of my art through the venue go to its 2019 charity, Missing People.

The weekend of my free open house at the Half Moon Putney coincides with the ticketed Music Makers Festival run by Albert Man Music, whose ethos is to showcase the talent of independent artists. Outside of the open house period, a changing exhibition of my Half Moon Putney musician work is constantly on show in the gastropub and music venue.

I’m also a founding member of the Lots Road Group of portrait artists who met when studying at Heatherleys, one of the few art colleges in Britain that focus on portraiture and figurative painting, and a member of Putney Artists. Winner of the Judges' Prize at Egypt's first biennale (2013), I’ve exhibited at the Milan Expo, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and National Open Art exhibitions (2015).

Sasha Bowles

Putney/Roehampton

6

Sasha Bowles is a London-based artist working across painting, objects, film and installation. Her practice deals with illusion, intervention and metamorphosis. Her works explore the past through the reinterpretation of artworks and artefacts placed within reimagined architectural and historical contextualisation.

Our identity is both a manifestation of bodily presence, outer appearance and situation placement. Sasha creates grand spaces of habitation and thresholds that are manifested as fantastical places that cannot exist. Different uncanny properties are used as conduits for intimacy, existence, status and personality.

Taking her starting point from ‘Old Masters’ paintings, photographs and classical architectural interiors, Bowles acts as a mischievous collaborator, working in alliance with the past. She then re-presents, subverting classical narratives and environments, cloaking and rearranging the images in a multitude of ways to open up new interpretations in new situations; the object interacts with its context and vice versa. By using architectural, museum and domestic display, Sasha examines the boundaries that cross between spaces and how the display and context of objects and artworks affects our reading and engagement with it. The known becomes uncanny and challenges us to re-evaluate our interpretation and engagement of the familiar.

51 Melrose Road, SW18 1LX
The Orchard Group

Putney/Roehampton

17

Four artists showing pottery, paintings, textiles and silver jewellery. Affordable and original works of art.

Jill Storey:
Twickenham artist, Jill Storey, has lived and painted in the area for many years. Inspired by foreign travel, the light and colour of new destinations, many of her sketchbook drawings, done on site, are later developed into larger paintings. She has a continual fascination for the Dorset coastline and the Thames, its riverside views, parks and buildings. She enjoys drawing, mixed media and experimenting with the fluid movement of watercolour contrasted with the rough textural marks of pastel. She has taught and exhibited widely in the Richmond area and had paintings accepted at open exhibitions in London.

Maggie Laing:
Maggie makes silver jewellery inspired by everyday objects. Her early work was based on tools used for gardening, cooking, sewing and woodworking. She aims to celebrate the role these unsung heroes play in our lives and to reveal their beauty. Her work took a new direction when she came upon some Victorian ceramic shards on the Kent coast. She saw the makings of a tiny teacup in one shape and a jug in another. By adding the missing parts in silver — spouts, handles and saucers — a whole new collection of jewellery was born.

Peta Cottee:
Peta makes small bags, purses, glasses cases, mobile phone covers, key chains and bag charms. All are handmade using leather and tweed offcuts from Italy’s and Scotland’s clothing and fashion trades.  Peta learned to sew as a child and was inspired to start again having found her old sewing machine gathering dust in the attic. She likes to put together strong colours and prints to make unique but useful accessories. She also makes handmade cards with scraps of fabric and buttons collected since the 1930s by her husband’s grandmother, who was a seamstress.

Peter Mumford:
Peter makes distinctive wheel-thrown pottery suitable for day-to-day domestic use. He throws and fires his work in his garden studio in Putney. His love of sailing and fixing up boats has led him to appreciate the beauty that can be found in functional objects. All his pottery is food and dishwasher safe and fired to 1250 degrees using lead-free glazes and stoneware clay. His work has been shown in galleries in London and Cornwall and he regularly shows at local fairs, including the recent very successful Barnes Fair.

51 Ashlone Road, SW15 1LS
Vera de Gernier

Putney/Roehampton

27

A self-taught artist who has developed a love and interest in learning and creating art. After experimenting with different mediums she discovered being attracted to mixed media: collages, texture and fluid painting. She hopes the pleasure, experimentation and sense of adventure experienced in the creative process is revealed through her artworks.

Ceramics and Seascape

Battersea/Nine Elms

80

Clare Frankl-Bertram retired from running her own architectural practice to move back to her first love: ceramics. Triggered by an increasing desire to have a hands-on engagement with the stuff of making, her work seeks to use the memory, strengths and vulnerabilities of clay to embody ideas of place and displacement.

“Hand building alongside throwing allows me to slowly find the form of each piece which comes from this process of space making and exposure. The pieces on show are a mix of sculptural and utilitarian works, which lie on the edge of functionality.”

1 Kite Yard, Cambridge Road, SW11 4TA

84 Ribblesdale Road, SW16 6SE
Elizabeth Pike

Putney/Roehampton

14

After completing her undergraduate degree at Wimbledon College of Art, Elizabeth Pike has kept South West London as her base, creating, living and working in the area. Elizabeth’s paintings draw from her own journey through life, her surroundings and imagination.

Starting off as everyday objects, painted from life, they evolve to include patterns and motions, captivating scenes of millennial life that transcend the everyday. These still lifes, although drawn from her surroundings, undergo an upheaval as the paint starts to create a movement and language of its own. Unafraid of the permanency of the paint, Elizabeth’s exploration generates layers of imagery and texture. Initially thinking these gestures to be mistakes, Elizabeth realises that the painting would not be appropriate without them. She comments, "I always have at least two paintings ongoing at once, sometimes in different mediums.” This process forges conversations between each painting, the artist and the subject, and prevents internal worries of 'creative block'.

Urban Faerie Jewellery

Tooting/Furzedown

63

Urban Faerie offers a variety of unique and different jewellery designs: 'Deluxe', 'Sakura', 'Steampunk' and 'Curiosities'.

Each 'Deluxe' jewellery piece is lovingly handmade by Urban Faerie, with the sterling silver sourced from London's oldest diamond district in Hatton Garden. Urban Faerie attempts to only use recycled silver in her work. The 'Deluxe' jewellery range is of great value as it supports the UK economy, particularly small London businesses.

24 Sellincourt Road, SW17 9RY
Journey of a Free Soul

Putney/Roehampton

2

I am a mixed media artist who is fascinated by the whirling dervishes, a mystical form of Sufism. I produce a lot on portraits too. The dervishes perform a meditative dance representing a symbolic journey to one's inner self. I try and capture the energy as the dancers open their arms and rotate rythmically to the music to get into a meditative trance. I am naturally drawn to spirituality and find the dance of the Sufis a beautiful expression to paint. The backdrop of modern city landscapes in my recent works serves to combine the energy within cities through the mystical Sufi dancers.

Kairos Spirituality and Conference Centre Mount Angelus Road, SW15 4JA
Chrispypottery

Southfields/Wandsworth Town

46

There are two separate strands to my work, which aims at being functional but also decorative. One strand allows me to enjoy the flexibility of slab building and creating work that is a little quirky but always an interesting addition to the table. The other I find exciting in that the final result (a mix of earthenware and porcelain or stoneware) can always surprise, often with a very organic effect.

203 Wimbledon Park Road London, SW18 5RH
Kim Winter: Flextiles

Tooting/Furzedown

65

Kim Winter of Flextiles loves to echo structures and processes from nature in her art, from the mathematical basis for a spiral shell to the chemistry of leaf prints on fabric. She finds the alchemy of transforming fluffy sheep’s fleece into a robust felt sculpture, or using plant material to transform a silk scarf or weave into an organic form, endlessly fascinating.

Living in a city offers plenty of opportunities to observe the interaction between urban life and nature, providing inspiration and sometimes materials for Kim's practice. Nature is often ephemeral, but she relishes trying to capture its essence in a more permanent form in her work.

46 Drakefield Road, SW17 8RP
Mandana Khonsari

Putney/Roehampton

28

Expressionist semi-abstract landscape and seascape paintings. Etchings of Putney Bridge and other landmarks of London. I will be showing my recent paintings in oil as well as some large paintings (100cmx100cm) in acrylic. These paintings, whether landscape or seascape, are inspired by locations across the British Isles. My etchings are from Putney Bridge, Hammersmith Bridge, St Paul's and the Millenium Bridge and some other London landmarks.

The Scout Hut 42 Oxford Road, SW15 2LQ
Phoebe Leigh

Tooting/Furzedown

66

I am a self-taught, emerging artist with a passion for exploring mixed media on canvas. I love to use whatever materials I can get my hands on, including stones, glue, spray paint, varnish and layers of acrylic to achieve unique, dense textures that produce multi-dimensional works you can’t help but want to touch. Photos do not do these pieces justice, you need to come and see for yourself.

This is my third year participating in WAOH and I am thoroughly looking forward to welcoming new and returners visitors to my home. Feel free to browse my work in peace or talk to me about how I achieve my unique finishes. Families encouraged. If you can't wait until October, please get in touch to discuss commissions or existing works for sale.

Her 'Tooting Bec' limited edition prints were acquired by London Transport Museum.

Karen Levan, Partially Sighted Artist

Putney/Roehampton

16

Karen Levan is a partially sighted artist who is inspired by a lifelong interest in history and the natural world, which has been a perpetual wealth of inspiration for her imagination.

She is very grateful to have the opportunity to share her work at Wandsworth Artists' Open house and is excited to display her paintings for the first time.

Due to Karen’s lack of sight, the results of her work can appear somewhat curious. Hopefully you will find her work intriguing, thought-provoking and pleasurable.

52 Bracken Avenue, SW12 8BH
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.

24 Cromer Villas Road, SW18 1PN

Sam Cottington

Battersea/Nine Elms

81

Sam's practice involves processes of visual and archival research that are contextualised in relationship to histories of collage and assemblage. Sam collages across various mediums and techniques to explore the complex critical moods and specificities of queer, its pasts and present, in order to afford alternative futures and ways of living.

The series of works shown at WAOH is titled ‘Lovers’, which refers to the shifting language used to describe queer intimacies and public identities in the 1970s at intersection with anti-capitalist ways of living. The terms ‘lover’ and ‘lovers’ emerged as critical alternatives to gender normative and conservative notions of boyfriends/ girlfriends, husbands/wives.

Sam's collages explore how archives afford and represent historical intimacies, while attempting to afford the fluidity and experimentation of 70s sexualities sensorially.

Valerie Taylor, Bob Read, Ann Sohn Rethel, Ann Funston

Tooting/Furzedown

59

ANN SOHN RETHEL makes pots for people to use in their daily lives. Using Chinese brushes, she decorates red earthenware with elements inspired by the natural world, such as butterflies and dragonflies or details of natural patterns and forms, although not always necessarily realistic. "I like the finished pot to retain the feel of the clay from which it was made. And I like the combination of conscious design and randomness, to which the art of making pots lends itself."

ANN FUNSTON's love of glass began with creating stained glass panels that often emulate landscape elements, many examples of which may be seen in this house. Of late she has been producing dishes and tiles using fused and slumped glass techniques. As can also be seen in her watercolours, colour is her joy and her strength. VALERIE TAYLOR paints mainly with water-based paints and charcoal, revelling in the broad sweeps of landscape (or lines of the human form), working as much as possible from drawings and sketches made in the open air. Having worked a lot in Cornwall and Wales of late, she has this year been concentrating on projects inspired by Herefordshire and the Yorkshire Dales. Training has been lifelong and somewhat haphazard, using Adult Education facilities such as Folkestone Art Centre, St. Ives School of Painting and Morley College.

Apart from two years living on a Scottish Island, Battersea-born BOB READ has always lived in South London, and has drawn inspiration from both worlds. He left a career in commercial architecture to study art at Chelsea School of Art and Kingston College. Working across a range of media and scales, his paintings explore colour, space and atmosphere. He has always maintained an interest in mark-making and the language of painting. His personal expression has derived from years spent drawing straight lines in architecture, both as reaction to the rational and in appreciation of structural forms. Consequently, subject matter tends towards ambiguity with an embedded sense of logic as the content attempts to uncover the internal and the subconscious.

There will also be cards by Jess Davies for sale.

Nur Ali Sheikh

Putney/Roehampton

1

91 year old, Nairobi-born Sheikh Nur Ali — philosopher and “international artist of peace” – has been described as a painter of beauty, with his images of neo-cubist themes, nostalgic women and landscapes winning him worldwide acclaim and inclusion in Who's Who in Art. Ali has painted and exhibited all over the world for the past fifty years.

Ali's philosophy and poetry is portrayed through the elements he paints, with crisp colour and rhythmical design. His African women dance, his animals move with grace and ease, his birds sing.

An amazingly versatile body of oil, tempera and watercolours draw on his African roots, his Indian heritage and British gentility. His work is sensuous and has historical, spiritual and contemporary concerns.

Ali formerly lived in a house depicted by Henry Matisse in one of his works set on the shores of Mediterranean in the Pyrenees Oriental between France and Spain. One of Ali's masterpieces is 'The Fruit of Love', in which he depicts himself as the bearded Adam beside a wide-eyed beautiful Eve under the tree of forbidden fruit.

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.

I make pictures in order to connect with people. My work is a fusion between a direct response to my surroundings, emotional and observational, and my state of mind about the subject; visualising them is how I focus and make sense of what I think, feel and see. I've exhibited in many galleries and art fairs over thirty years. My most recent work is a response to the environmental crisis of climate change, and our relationship to our home planet.

My painting style has developed gradually, using a variety of media including oil and acrylic paint, ink and watercolour. Chalk pastel, charcoal and collage techniques are often used to generate ideas and clarify elements of a composition that may inform larger paintings. Mixed media works often incorporate found objects or materials and are finished works in their own right. I have been exploring obscure text in expressive gestural painting most recently, which gives a huge range of options and also explains the meaning of the work. The representational work draws on my architectural training. The images are generated by making drawings and taking photographs on location of interiors, views or scenes, most recently in the UK, Europe and my native Australia. The work is a layering of building and landscape motifs, and the factual information is used to develop ambiguous spatial relationships, in order to reflect the way I see. The paintings rely heavily on drawing, and also incorporate my memory of being there. I am trying to distil just what I saw and how I felt at the time, and editing out the irrelevant material, as the way we perceive is highly selective; what is left behind is in my representational work.

The abstract paintings are sometimes based on poems or memories that have moved or inspired me by the imagery evoked in the language. The poetry provides the springboard for my work. The work ranges from large, door-sized, stretched and unframed canvases, featuring impasto oil paint to small postcard-sized watercolours. The actual motifs are drawn from my imagination, in response to a written word, image or memory.

Salma Nassef

Battersea/Nine Elms

A collection of pieces, exploring different creative narratives and techniques. Nassef's canvas piece is inspired by a love of drawing faces in abstract form, which is why she has painted her family onto a fabric canvas.

She will also display a music video, which showcases a first attempt at special effects and editing inspired by dance music. She has also created a piece inspired by nature, whereby organic materials are preserved in resin, PVA glue and plastic pockets. Both of the handmade dresses were inspired by flowers and patterns in nature; each dress was made using different techniques and decorated using different methods, including lino printing and hand embroidery, her favourite technique.

Yet again the door of Elżbieta Smoleńska's gallery will open to the public to reveal her latest work (photography, limited edition prints and unique jewellery). In 2017, her gallery was voted the most popular Wandsworth Artists' Open House venue.

Lately, she has exhibited with great success with well established art groups such as London Group, Free Painters and Sculptors, Association of Polish Artists in the UK and Friday Group. 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.

Pietra Galli

Battersea/Nine Elms

81

Pietra Galli (b.1996, Brazil/Portugal) is a multimedia artist based in London. She's a graduate from BA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts, and has a diverse set of skills and interests in moving image, photography, critical writing, ceramics and book making.

Her work rethinks ideas of subjectivity and individuality in a time of intense information consumption and accelerated communication. Debating the notion of information as a clear and accurate language, she uses it in fictional investigations to produce installations containing film, sculpture and sound. Works are often followed by a publication.

By using these different elements, she aims to shape places where a sensorial language is highlighted and misunderstandings are created.

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.

I make art from found objects, mainly in wood, but all things are considered. It's a type of recycling that gives things a new lease of life beyond their original intended purpose or function. What I maje depends on what I find. It's like letting shapes speak for themselves and then seeing how to respond and create something new and different.

Valerie Taylor, Bob Read, Ann Funston, Ann Sohn Rethel

Tooting/Furzedown

59

ANN SOHN RETHEL makes pots for people to use in their daily lives. Using Chinese brushes, she decorates red earthenware with elements inspired by the natural world, such as butterflies and dragonflies or details of natural patterns and forms, although not always necessarily realistic. "I like the finished pot to retain the feel of the clay from which it was made. And I like the combination of conscious design and randomness, to which the art of making pots lends itself."

ANN FUNSTON's love of glass began with creating stained glass panels that often emulate landscape elements, many examples of which may be seen in this house. Of late she has been producing dishes and tiles using fused and slumped glass techniques. As can also be seen in her watercolours, colour is her joy and her strength. VALERIE TAYLOR paints mainly with water-based paints and charcoal, revelling in the broad sweeps of landscape (or lines of the human form), working as much as possible from drawings and sketches made in the open air. Having worked a lot in Cornwall and Wales of late, she has this year been concentrating on projects inspired by Herefordshire and the Yorkshire Dales. Training has been lifelong and somewhat haphazard, using Adult Education facilities such as Folkestone Art Centre, St. Ives School of Painting and Morley College.

Apart from two years living on a Scottish Island, Battersea-born BOB READ has always lived in South London, and has drawn inspiration from both worlds. He left a career in commercial architecture to study art at Chelsea School of Art and Kingston College. Working across a range of media and scales, his paintings explore colour, space and atmosphere.

His personal expression has derived from years spent drawing straight lines in architecture, both as reaction to the rational and in appreciation of structural forms. Consequently, subject matter tends towards ambiguity with an embedded sense of logic as the content attempts to uncover the internal and the subconscious.

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.

Gordon Render

Southfields/Wandsworth Town

I graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Cape Town a long time ago, majoring in painting and photography. I worked as photographer then moved to cinematography. I spent many years shooting many different things, ranging from feature films and television to commercials and corporate videos.

I also spent time writing for the screen and television. I had loads of failures and a good few successes: that is the nature of the screen-writing 'beast'.

About eight years ago I realised that my last painting exhibition was in 1978 in Cape Town and that I hadn't made a picture of any description since! I decided to do something about that and picked up where I'd left off. I have been making art again since then...

I have spent time interpreting my reactions to photographs that have meant a lot to me and visualising those reactions. Many of these photographs are truly iconic images, images that have become part of of our cultural heritage. Others are by photographers who have affected the way I look at the world - photographic artists who I admire and to whom I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude for their ability to look at, and capture, things in a way that informs and enlightens me and anyone else who sees their work.

Other work is either influenced by or based on my own photography.

Lucinda creates a multitude of people from her imagination. Whether in oil or gouache paint, prints or mosaic, faces peer out from every surface. Imaginary figures enjoy each other's company and nuances of feelings pass between them. There are framed and unframed works, cards and prints to buy and even some jigsaw puzzles. The garden is spacious and welcoming. Sit by the pond and enjoy some autumn sun under the olive and medlar trees. Tea and cake will be served.

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.
