One of the figures from 'My Light is Your Light', a tribute from artist Alaa Minawi to Syrian refugees. Part of Lumiere London 2018.
.
"...The fragile outlines of a family glowing in the darkness... Minawi says "I would like people to know these are not refugees. As an artist it is important to highlight the fact that we need to view them as people who were forced to leave their homes. That is a much more powerful approach... We have to go to the real meaning of the word 'refugee' without the fears that are currently stimgatising it."
.
You can see the artwork on Church Place next to St James' church, until 21 Jan.

Laser Cut Wall Art London Tube by @studio_m_design

Emma's work uses her skills as a draughtsman to explore the intricate process of laser cutting and etching. In this piece, the perspective has been exaggerated, simplified and turned into a collage of laser cut wood on digitally printed block colour and card. Studio M Design is based in South East London and joined us for the Camberwell Arts Market in December.

Painter and artist RIchard Phoenix next to his work at his studios in Camberwell.
His most recent series of paintings, 'Astigmatism: Sight Paintings', are part of a wider documentary project made without the aid of lenses, which he wears to correct defective eyesight. The process forced a new way of looking that freely engaged with imperfection and embracing a positive conception of disability.

Correspondence O, by @ilonasagar
Two channel projection
Stereo
19 mins 34 secs
.
Visiting @southlondongallery to see exhibition 'Correspondence O', exploring the radical
Pioneer Health Centre founded in Peckham, 1926. Radical because the doctors believed it was worth finding out not just what makes us unwell, but what makes us well. The centre provided families in the local community with physical activities; a gym and swimming pool, alongside the opportunity for socialising. Still relevant today, there are similarities to the campaign '5 ways to wellbeing'.

#1yearofstitches inspired by @hannahclairesomerville
A creative way to keep a diary, a journey of personal map making through embroidery.
Hannah's project stemmed from her interest in the impact, or mark, that an individual makes on a daily basis and as a means of generating a deeper reflection upon the choices we make as a society.

Liquitex and mixed media on canvas

"Sometimes I’ve noticed how abstract artists, (some dead), have been turning up to paint the walls and billboards in this part of South London. We should all feel privileged to have these famous artists’ subtle interventions. So I have photographed their work, and painted from them to record their productions."
Paul Ashurst lives and works at his house and studio in Camberwell, South London.
