Featured Artist - Kit Boyd

Kit’s art explores our relationship with landscape and our place in nature. Recent etchings have been primarily influenced by Samuel Palmer; they explore modern landscapes in an antique style and are sometimes populated with figures using modern technology. He follows in the British romantic tradition, and is particularly influenced by Neo-romantic artists of the 1940s and the Surrealist movement. He shows at Greenwich Printmakers, Southbank Printmakers, Skylark Galleries and the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in Charlotte Street.


Featured Artist - Ayse Hassan

Ayse Hassan is a locally based, Turkish Cypriot artist, who came to live in London in the late 60s and on her arrival to Brixton in the early 90s she immersed herself in the DIY culture of Cooltan Arts and with a few women (assisted by Vince) built a darkroom in the old dole office as well as supporting the progressive self-funded community with organising London’s finest parties, art activities and events.

Ayse finances her photography practice by sharing her creative skills within the charity and educational sectors with the determination to be in Japan in 2015!

As a photographic artist Ayse Hassan is engrossed in the philosophical concept of ‘self and the environment’ in which human existence stems from the concept of mutual interconnectedness with the environment reflecting like a mirror our human action and our expressions of thought and feelings.


Featured Artist – Richard Pavitt
