|Braziers International Artists' Workshop |
Set up ten years ago in Braziers Park, Oxfordshire by artists Gill Ord, Bernadette Moloney, Andy Cohen and Simon Faithfull, Braziers International Artists' Workshop has grown to be the most truly international of all such organisations. As an unrivelled opportunity for artists to exchange and develop ideas, removed both geographically and conceptually from their usual studio practice, the workshop has expanded over the years until it now counts over 33 countries and 250 artists amongst it's extended community. From Bolivia to Zimbabwe, via Japan and Khirgizstan.
To celebrate this tenth year artists were specially invited to return and on their second visit deepen their involvement with the workshop and their fellow artists, perhaps with a lesser anxiety about their displacement and isolation.
Thus we present at studio 1.1 a set of works which. while only representing a part of the produced in response to or reaction against the site itself, nevertheless gives a valuable insight into the creative processes of proffesional artists adrift in an English idyll.
Among the artists represented in the exhibition are:
Khaled Hourani (Palestine)
Dai Roberts (UK)
Vineta Kaulaca (Latvia)
Ghassan Maasri (Lebanon)
David Chirwa (Zambia)
Rafael Sanchez (Cuba/USA)
Andy Harper (UK)
Yoji Matsumura (Japan)
