Next FUSED GLASS Workshop 31st August

The 3 hr workshop will teach you the basics of glass fusing how to cut glass and make patterns with opaque and translucent glass.  You will design and make your own set of 4 10x10cm glass coasters or a single larger glass artwork.  I have a range of coloured sheet glass to use, as well ground glass, powders, and stringers. There is so much to explore in glass.


Visiting Artist at KAA with ACAVA Flourish and ACAVA Arts 

I was selected by ACAVA flourish to be a visiting artist at Kensington Aldridge Academy. Working with the students over a 5 week period, I shared my own practice and experimental approaches to painting / printmaking. Each visit entailed a workshop for students to develop their own emotive self-portraits.
ACAVA flourish is an arts and wellbeing programme for North Kensington residents impacted by Grendel Tower Fire.

Process can be thought of as a path that one decides to undertake, one with a destiny that can be clear from the onset or otherwise unknown. Similarly, artists create paths when producing artwork; the layers are gradually exposed, the materials are made visible, and the relation between one another emerges and opens the door to the visions of the artists. The spectator is then able to trace the paths each one of them has explored to reach a final result. A constant metamorphosis that has lead to an equilibrium: from a thought, to a gesture, and then to another unexpected equilibrium. To create becomes something like a ceremony, an event that generates its own language, often coinciding with or becoming a general concern or the object of experimentation.

NARS Foundation, 201 46th St., Brooklyn NY 11220

Keren Anavy, Niamul Bari, Aglae Bassens, Emily Berger, Kat Chamberlin, Dongfan Chen, Andre Eamiello, Devra Fox, Nadine Mahoney, Ioana Manolache, Noël St. John Harnden, Nikki Schiro, Jahyun Seo, Elena Soterakis, Brian Stinemetz, Yi Xin Tong, Gus Wheeler, Erich Winzer

The New York Art Residency & Studios (NARS) Foundation is pleased to announce the annual Studio Artist exhibition, a showcase of the diverse community of artists working and creating at NARS year round. Aglae Bassen’s painting lends the exhibition its title and thematic principle. The question of how to orient and locate oneself in relation to space, the other, natural and social phenomena is foregrounded in many of the works. The studio, one’s painting practice and processes, and art as self-expression and “bearing witness” are positions to be explored and staked out. The very light of Sunset Park temporally locates Ioana Manolache’s work in her studio, even as they don’t refer to anything but the conditions of their making and the status of painting. Gus Wheeler’s paintings of fans and their placement in the gallery are meant to disorient and dislocate with their overwhelming familiarity. On the other end, global warming and environmental crises locate Elena Soterakis’ paintings in the here and now. There may not be a map or instructions for our way out of the dystopic future they depict.

Opening reception: Friday June 2 , 7.30- 11pm

Java Projects is pleased to Present HEADS, a group show featuring the work of Eve Ackroyd, Aglae Bassens and Nadine Mahoney.

The works in this show combine the influence of historical European Painting and the imagery found in contemporary society, in an age of social media and advertising. These three artists’ practices overlap in harmonious and compelling ways and investigate the shifting nature of the self within a complex and fluid society.

The Java Project is located at 252 Java Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11222.

Java Projects is open Sundays 12-6pm and by appointment.

Re-Launch – 27th April-12th June – UCL Art Museum

Re-Launch presents a selection of objects, prints and video made in response to our collections and the theme of re-launch. Its contributors hail from the Slade School of Fine Art and have participated as students in our celebrated annual Slade/UCL Art Museum collaborations over the course of the past six years. While some artists investigate the sculptures, prints and drawings in our collections, others experiment with the physical spaces of the Museum to either exploit or explode notions of the archive and its structure.

Pause: 20-22nd Feb, Chisenhale Art PLace

Pause…. is an enforced stop in an otherwise energetic studio practice. This three day exhibition is a temporary halt of the artist’s creative process, allowing visitors a snap shot of Nadine Mahoney’s current studio practice. The setting of Studio 4 is neither a formal gallery nor a working studio, instead offering the opportunity to view the works in a contemplative space separated from traditional constructs. Spanning the breadth of her practice, an assemblage of drawings, prints, paintings on copper, canvas and panel will be displayed in this in-between space.

I will be participating in the Art Car Boot Fair in Folkestone on 30th August

Many pieces have been specially made for the event with paintings, drawings and prints at one day only prices! And to bring a bit of fun to the event, a selection of works will be part of the ‘Art Tombola’ that I am running with artist Jessica Nina Mello. Tickets will be just £10!!!!! with each ticket winning an oringinal piece of art. The full line up has yet to be announced but Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk and Peter Blake are likely to be selling their wares too.

Harbour car park in Folkestone, 12 – 4pm, Saturday 30th August.
