Gasworks provides nine subsidised studios on a five-year basis to London based artists. The group, which reflects the diversity of artists and practices in London, forms an integral part of Gasworks’ community and creates a dynamic and supportive environment for exhibiting and international residency artists. Due to limited spaces, studios are seldom available but please check our opportunities page or join our mailing list to keep up to date with opportunities when they come up.
Gasworks is a member of the National Federation of Artists' Studio Providers: www.nfasp.org.uk
Kudzanai-Violet Hwami’s bold paintings reveal a deeply personal vision of Southern African life. Many of her paintings feature self-portraits and images of her immediate and extended family. Powerful nudes are another point of departure, raising questions about the black body and its representation, as well as sexuality, gender and spirituality.
Sriwhana is interested in the fertile margins and rich edges where things meet and spill-over, playing in the crevices of culturally inscribed boundaries through the exploration of various mediums in conversation with each other: film, writing, performance, dance, music, and sculpture.
Rehana Zaman is an artist based in London. She works predominantly with moving image and performance to examine how social dynamics are produced and performed. Her work speaks to the entanglement of personal experience and social life where intimacy is framed against the hostility of state legislation, surveillance and control.
Alice is interested in out itinerant lives and how bodies take pleasure being wherever they are. The body could be lizard like, lying there, soaking up the summer heat, but the mind is somewhere other; thinking about that deadline or what to make for dinner. She works with painting, with a particular interest in their physical presence.
