Niños

14 January 2022 – 31 January, 2022

‘ Niños ’ is a mini solo show by Jose Campos, aka Studio Lenca. The exhibition presents a series of 6 most recent paintings by the Salvadorian artist. Rendered in pastel colours , Jose portraits his signature figures wearing sombreros touching upon his native El Salvador. As a queer member of the Latinx diaspora, his work is focused on ideas surrounding difference, knowledge, and visibility. The artist’s work often evolves around personal memories and creative activism. Jose Campos of Studio Lenca was born in La Paz, El Salvador, and like many, had to flee the country during its violent civil war during the late 1980s. He travelled to the US by land, illegally with his mother. He grew up in San Francisco, California, as a queer minority in the gaze of a strictly conservative administration and as an undocumented ‘illegal alien’. Ultimately, he found refuge in the UK and became a British Citizen in 2007. This experience of being uprooted serves as a framework for his ideas to be read by others as themes of identity, belonging, and oppression are universal.

REALITIES

02 DECEMBER 2021 – 31 NOVEMBER 2021

‘Realities’ – is a group exhibition celebrating our first-time, real-life presence but foremostly explores the different creative perceptions of reality through the eyes of 5 women artists; Valerie Savchits, Kristy M Chan, Kora Moya Rojo, Georgia Dymock, and Manon Steyaert. The question of what reality is has been considered not only by philosophers, scientists but also by many of us. One such belief is that there simply and literally is no reality beyond the perceptions or beliefs we each have about reality. Such attitudes are summarized in the popular statement, "Perception is reality" or "Life is how you perceive reality" or "reality is what you can get away with" ( Robert Anton Wilson). In the creative minds of artists, this question becomes once again an open debate, a subject for individual interpretation through artistic means.

NOSTALGIA

05 NOVEMBER 2021 – 26 NOVEMBER, 2021

'Nostalgia' A sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past. This three-person group show presents three women artists, Kidd Murray, Nina Baxter, and Louise Dee, exploring the diverse triggers of this human emotion.

AUGUST AND OTHER STORIES

18 AUGUST 2021 – 18 SEPTEMBER, 2021

‘Artistellar is pleased to present ‘August and Other Stories,’ the first solo show of Jeanine Brito. Every August carries a melancholic languishing as summer winds down, making us nostalgic and reflective. In some ways, we have lived through a year of Augusts, indulging our memories day after day, both bitter and sweet. In her debut solo show “August and Other Stories ” German-born Canadian artist Jeanine Brito presents 11 works that at once indulge and undo her own August memories. With each painting, she seeks to capture not what occurred, but her recollection of what occurred, at once more and less real than what one might say ‘really happened’.

NOCTURNAL GODS

20 JULY 2021 – 15 AUGUST, 2021

‘Nocturnal Gods' is a solo exhibition of the Colombia-born artist Stefania Tejada. Five remarkable paintings show Stefania’s preoccupation with women and the feminine spirit. This body of work shows fragments of dreams reflecting on her personal longings and connections she makes with the earth and explorations of the self. Rendered in realism resembling photographic images, Stefania creates a multi-dimensional natural scenery that sets the female figure in the centre. The protagonist, portrayed in beautiful outfits, with subtle notes of fashion brands, demonstrates the feminine physics’ elegance and style. Dark tones and animal features are a meditation on ourselves, our dark places, and truthfulness.
