3 pm – 6 pm Open Doors Day at the Copper Leg Art Residency
4 pm Opening of the exhibition by Tamar Lewinsohn & Anastasios Veloudis.
You are welcome to visit the Copper Leg Art Residency this Sunday and open our new residents’ exhibition at Rae Schoolhouse.
Tamar Lewinsohn (ISR)
Tamar is an Israeli artist who focuses on photography as her primary medium.
Her work explores the manual aspects within the photographic medium and the relationship between photography, printmaking and drawing.
Tamar is currently working on an ongoing photographic project “NOTHING IS TEMPORARY” during her residency at Copper Leg. This project explores the basic elements of photography in search of poetic meaning and potential.
The paper and print are heavily concerned as an integral part of the work. She is interested in finding new ways of exploring the printmaking process in the darkroom which will emphasize the unique aspect of a singular copy within the photographic medium.
Anastasios Veloudis (GRC/GBR)
Anastasios Veloudis is an Greek origin interdisciplinary designer and visual artist working and living in London. He studied fine arts, structural engineer design, graphic design and received his master’s degree in digital media arts from the University of Brighton.
His art practice has been constantly drawn towards abstraction and non-literal, metaphoric forms working with a variety of tools, from acrylic and paper collage to photography and video. Duality is ever-present in his work – combining dynamic geometrical shapes with organic free-flowing forms as a result of action painting.
During the Copper Leg Residency, he is exploring the potentials of found and discarded materials from around the area with which he is intended to create a new visual narrative. The creative process is a perpetual effort to take advantage of any spontaneous, irrational outcome arising from his practice in order to transmute it to a source of inspiration.
See you on Sunday!
