Andrea Robinson is a visual artist working with printmaking, text, installation, performance and poetry. She is a founder member of print collective The Friday Group, a member of the Printmakers Council, and since 2009 has exhibited her prints and artist books at venues across London, and in Margate, Deal, Scarborough, Aldeburgh, Dublin, Berlin and Luxembourg, with forthcoming exhibitions at Sprout, Barnoon Workshop St Ives and Morley Gallery. Her prints are held in private collections in the UK, in Salford Zine Library and Archive, in the PMC archive at Scarborough Art Gallery and Museum and the V&A, London.
Inspired by found text, photographs, artefacts and family histories, Andrea’s prints combine a range of screen print techniques (including print-collage, photo-stencils and mono print), to create delicate works in small editions. The City and the Sea is a new series of screen prints based on her own photographs of the places that bring her joy.
After 1997, having completed her psychotherapy training, Debbie Flatt was able to devote more time to her art practice. In addition to local weekly classes and residential courses in Scotland and St Ives over the next few years she went on to complete a Diploma in Art and Design at Putney School of Art in 2012, with etching as her main subject. She has exhibited and sold from several mixed shows and from her own Artists Open House many times since 2005, including paintings, etchings, collage and mixed media.
Through her experience as a therapist Debbie has been preoccupied with boundaries, containment and enclosure, often expressed in black and white and in etchings. She has a continuing fascination with toys, puppets, dolls and cast-offs. Once loved, now discarded, these objects are outworn, broken or disfigured and often embody memories. They can be both an object themselves but also contain a sense of loss and sadness. Toys can have a strange, uncanny and unsettling presence which evoke childhood for us.
Bob Read - Brought up in Battersea has, apart for two years living on a Scottish Island, always lived in South London and has drawn inspiration from both worlds. Dropping out Gauguin style from a career in commercial architecture, he study at Chelsea School of Art and later for a Fine Arts degree at Kingston College.
Working in a range of media and scale his paintings contain colour, space and atmosphere. They suggest a narrative that can at times evoke a sense of mystery. He has always maintained an interested in mark making and the language of painting. His personal expression derived from the years spent drawing straight lines in architecture, both as reaction to the rational and an appreciation of structural forms. As a consequence the subject matters tend towards ambiguity with an embedded sense of logic while the content attempts to uncover the internal and the subconscious.
He has exhibited regularly in London and Brighton.
