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. 

If you haven't been before, see the galleries of prior events below.

Guest artists #11

Amanda Danicic art work

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 Crenshaw

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.

Paul Tecklenberg

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 Reardon art work

Helen Reardon

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 Cooney

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. 

Romulo Gonçalves

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.

John Workman

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.
