Julia da Mota

Artist Bio

I live and work in São Paulo, Brazil. Before getting an MFA at the University of São Paulo, I studied Architecture at the same University. I am deeply influenced by the Brazilian Modernist and Concrete Art movements, as well as the great masters of Brazilian brutalism in architecture. My artistic research is based on the representation of man-made space and landscape, and the boundaries present in such spaces. I seek basic units of architectural effect, relating spatial materialization as a representation of social relations present in the city itself —the boundaries between public and private, external or internal; between built and empty spaces; between the acts of passage and permanence.
I have always been very intimate with printmaking processes, having worked with woodcuts, copperplate etchings, monotypes, lithographs, silkscreen printing, and bookmaking techniques; as well as drawing, painting, and photography. My most recent works are linked to the act of repetition as a creative process in printmaking and painting, to create visual narratives around themes such as space, urban landscape, and architecture.

Jeremy Bevan

Artist Bio

Brought up in the Sussex countryside Jeremy now lives in Bowes Park, although he also spends time near the North Norfolk coast. With a background as a gardener, his art work is based on observational drawings of natural forms, urban and rural landscapes, plants, fruit and everyday objects.

Jeremy makes prints using mainly lino printing, but also screen printing and mono printing. He is also a painter and recently started to use an iPad to create digital artworks.

Most of his linocut prints are created in his garden studio in Bowes Park on a home-made printing press. Larger work and screen prints are made at East London Printmakers in Mile End.

The screen prints are made with both paper stencils and photo emulsion plates

The linocut prints are mostly made by conventionally cutting sheets of lino, but the latest prints also incorporate layers which have been etched with caustic soda, giving a looser and more textured feel to the final print.
