|Open Studios Weekend in Perivale|
Meet artists and view their work
Meet the artists in their studios and enjoy a wide selection of art disciplines
ACAVA Studios, Stewkley House
On the second weekend of September the 26 artists working in Stewkley House ACAVA studios in Perivale open their doors and invite visitors in to view their art and how they work. The open day will be a unique opportunity to meet the artists and to buy works from a variety of disciplines, including painting, printing, sculpture, drawing, glass work, mixed-media, photography, millinery and much more besides ....
Lynne Beel‘s work deals with the imaginative journey. Evolving into the domain of the mythologized scene, it often depicts interiorised dramatic situations or external landscapes.
Robert Bramwell-Jones makes a small A5 painting every day, which he collects in grids and which often form the basis for larger paintings. His work represents a visual journal and a celebration of time.
Anna Bridges is an Artist & Printmaker who lives and works in London. She has vast experience in a range of Printmaking Processes and has exhibited widely. Some of her work is inspired by her travels - the New York sky line, Spanish interiors and Ronda landscapes as well as places closer to home.
Harriet Cameron's collection of silk velvet and linen scarves for men and women with colour as her inspiration, is a necessity for her, and this imparts an appreciation of all the things she values.
Peter Esslemont has a drawing and painting practice. 'Painting is an accumulation of evidence which reflects the life of its own making and the daily life that has gone into it'. (Patrick Michael Fitzgerald)
Esperanza Gómez-Carrera is fascinated by all materials, but not a form of fascination with a visual or tactile meaning, what attracts her is that any material when worked on correctly can be transformed into a sculpture, into an object that can convey a concept, an idea, an emotion. She collaborates with the materials, rather than trying to impose on them, willing to allow them to explore and express themselves.
Penny Graham is known for her intense colourful interiors painted in gouache and ink. Subjects have varied in size and content from the magnificent Carved Room at Petworth House to the tiny idiosyncratic interior of Roald Dahl's writing hut in Buckinghamshire.
David Kiely, through the medium of paint, references subjects of the everyday and mundane. Giving these places and objects centre-stage he highlights the drama of everyday life.
Jumpei Kinoshita’s art focuses on the relation between light and colour. Especially, he is fascinated with the beauty of soft light through paper, which introduces the fine quality of a Japanese Shoji screen.
Oksana Kondratyeva is a painter and stained glass artist. Her works are full of deep-rooted polarities: visible and invisible, being and non-being, solid and intangible.
Brett Manley is a glass artist and tutor. She works in glass in many techniques including fusing and slumping, casting, painting, hand cut stencils, sandblast, inclusions and coldwork. Her inspiration derives from many things including nature, her photography and repetitious patterns.
Casey Moore is a photographer working with old large format cameras to photograph the world around him. Sometimes in close up and sometimes with a wider view. He makes handmade photographic prints of all sizes from 10"x8" up to 60"x40" in his darkroom in west London.
Lisa Peachey is a multi-disciplinary artist (sculpture, drawing, video) whose work engages with the point of contact between the personal, the private and the sacred. The work is contemplative in tone, and questions the idea and value of making.
Joanne Poulton is a specialist in paint and Italian plaster finishes for walls and furniture, residential and commercial. Projects range from traditional, faux marble and woodgraining effects to gilding and bespoke contemporary designs.
Martina Riedlbauchova makes abstract, decorative oil and acrylic paintings on canvas and drawings on wrapping paper with pens and crayons. Her images are full of bright colours, stripes, dots and hidden lines, all which create organic rhythm of shapes.
Nairi Sahakian’s work reflects on the shifting tides in hero worship among Eastern and Western societies and the facile replacement with pop idols in contemporary culture. She makes paintings in oils, acrylics and collage and designs millinery.
Nigel Waymouth's work includes graphics, portraiture and still life. His work is held in private collections and museums.
