About The Apârtment
The Apârtment is about finding new ways to exhibit a spectrum of visual and performative work and explores a dialogue between the space, the artworks and the visiting audience. The concept draws on the unusual homely layout of the studios, making it an open welcoming space for resident and invited artists to co-create and foster new networks.

Guest artists #11
Amanda's art varies from detailed, intricate drawings or etchings to vibrant and intense abstract colour studies. Her work includes etchings, lithographs, screenprints, drawings and paintings.
Mary continues the topic of migration in her work, drawing on the concept of home and dwelling.' Inspired by 'Desirable Residence', a Chinese-derived decoration used by The Bow China Works, circa 1758.
Much of my practice is about perception and revealing what is usually hidden. This has taken the form of revealing subconscious memories or experimenting with photographic paper and objects.
Helen's paintings, prints & jewellery designs bring together elements of natural form, architecture & ornamentation. Abstract & figurative become meshed. reflecting the often unsettling pursuit of balance between expectation, aspiration & opportunity.
Linda has toyed with paint, pencil, paper, print, pastel for as long as she can remember. Whatever in life she does, her head is constantly involved with images and ideas for painting. She studied and exhibited in London, New York and Los Angeles.
Brings attention to the issue of the precarious relationship between Man and Nature—and the interaction of Nature, Society and Technology— with inspiration from his immediate everyday experience of mass media and the contact with the textural elements.
Much of John's inspiration comes from 18th century landscapes using found materials such as wallpaper and postcards set behind glass panels and inside light boxes.
JJ has been documenting East London for over 15 years. Using photography, he explorse the interplay between between emotion, place, subject matter, chance, aesthetics and the passage of time.
The Apârtment core team
