The art studio as we know it has a history that stretches back to the Middle Ages. At its most basic, the art studio was, and still is, a workshop in which artists not only produce their own work but also work with a small number of students to train and pass skills onto them. To the artists and students who have the luxury of such a place, though, it is so much more. A studio gives its artists a physical base, an artistic focus and a surrounding that encourages ideas and physical work to flourish. In fact, it has been said that a studio is not just a place, but a state of mind.
The eight artists exhibiting here are resident artists at Kew Art Studio in London. Kew Art Studio is one of an increasingly rare resource for artists – an affordable space which houses resident artists, open studio space for non-resident artists, etching and screen printing studios and classes. One of the most exciting aspects of a place like Kew Studio is the diversity of skills, expertise and importantly, ideas that come together in one space. As artists, it is this exchange of ideas that nourishes us and gives rise to fresh thinking and ever-evolving work. We are painters, weavers, photographers, mosaic and collage artists. The work is diverse, but born of the same energy and incubated in the same safe place.
