Molly Van Amerongen

October 2023

Molly van Amerongen is a London-based abstract artist using using oil, acrylic, pigment and collage. She loves the richness of pigments, which create “colours  without names”. Collage is also very important in her process, and she takes elements from drawings, incorporating them into larger scale paintings. Her compositions are not always conscious and she likes that there is an element of chance and 'the accidental' in her work.




Maya Fuhr

September 2023

grew up in Victoria, British Columbia with a sense of separation from the outside world. A young girl with nowhere to escape to, she explored the world via magazines and her imagination. This might be most felt in her irreverent approach to fashion, where precious conventions give way to satire and subculture.

Mia Vallance 

April 2023

In a deluge of malvoyant pigments and brushstrokes, Mia Vallances’ abstract paintings manage to give us something to hold on to. Favouring monochromatic washes, her pictures are rich with the pigments she has chosen, subtly shifting from one colour to the next, as our eyes make out the confused and yet uncomplicated arrangements she is describing to us. Her recent work involves painting in thin and watery layers of paint that seep and bleed into the canvas. The paint is guided roughly by Vallance yet is able to travel a little as if having a voice of its own, responding in the conversation between her and us.

Rose Electra Harris

March 2023

Rose Electra Harris is a London-based printmaker and painter. Having completed a degree in printmaking at the University of Brighton in 2015, she now works from her studio in south London.
Rose uses her work to explore interior space, using the obscure and everyday objects to which she’s drawn to create her still lifes. Fascinated by colour, line, shape, texture and pattern, Rose places these objects – some from memory, some imagined, some collected over time – in her roomscapes, playing around with them until she finds the perfect composition, always in search of balance and harmony. Rose reimagines the colourful dialogue that exists between space and furnishings, as interested in the negative space between objects as she is in the objects themselves. She isn’t concerned with portraying objects exactly as they are, but more how they make her feel, making use of a singularly distorted, ever so slightly off-kilter, perspective to do so. To her, a room is an oasis and the things within it are what bring it to life.

Frankie Tobin

March 2023

Frankie Tobin uses a variety of mediums within her practice to excavate collective archetypes of the human unconscious. The varied nature her work manifests as results in the effect of world building across disciplines. She is currently pursuing a masters in painting at the Royal College of Art in London; traditionally having roots along the west coast of the United States. She favors the exploration of color and abstracted figuration to both provoke narrative and translate emotional realities. The works she produces are derived from a sense based lens niche to her own experience within the female collective conscious. Her aim is to connect inner structures to external felt realities. “I paint to alchemize pains I collect from encountering the external world. To inquire space for tenderness while holding meaning in living with original human fear”.

Demit Omphroy

October 2021 - December 2021
January 2023

Demit studied art at the University of California, Berkeley. After a couple years of professional soccer, he pursued a new career in photography and filmmaking. Painting was always a constant passion across the different stages of his life, changing with him throughout his personal and professional development. His style has been heavily influenced by simplified lines and primary colors. Demit has been fascinated by the concept of eternal youth living inside of everyone. He believes as people get older, it is imperative to maintain and nurture that inner child- free to make mistakes, free to create without bounds. Thematically, all of his pieces focus on channeling that inner child by allowing artistic expression without the boundaries we internalize from our experiences with the world.

Katarina Janeckova

October - November 2021

Janeckova documents her life in various portraits and depictions of figures in peculiar or provocative situations, combining unvarnished reality and psychological fantasy. Her images are dominated by female subjects who occupy female spaces such as kitchens, bedrooms, and balconies; they are nude and pretty, though posed in opposition with power and influence. Bears stand in for men, female body builders squat and flex on flower vases, and attractive women are pleasured by multiple others. Janeckova examines relationships, with herself and perceived partners, while prompting the viewer, through her representations and symbolism, to connect what they see to their own sexuality, identity, and history.

Rafael Jaén

October - December 2021

Rafael René Jaén Brillembourg is a painter who currently works from his studio in México City, México. Growing up in Venezuela with the influence of the South American Color Palette and traveling around the world, he has forged a strong link with Nature. As a result, he embraces Nature as an inspiration and centerpiece of his work and the study of human behavior. Transforming everything that exists within it, he depicts the Nature that surrounds us and the one inside his thoughts, the inner voice. Using powerful and dynamic colors, he has developed a very distinctive style of his own.
"Studying human Nature is a fascinating way of gathering inspiration for my paintings. Observing the interaction between humans and Nature allows me to create a complete visual expression of that feeling. The power of the subject and the vibrancy of the colors transport your mind into places you didn't know existed. For me, Nature has the ability of awakening human intuition and exploring an individual's sensibility by connecting with one's inner energy".
