PRIMER | JULY 2016
You are warmly invited to join us at the studio for PRIMER, a collaborative project between composer James Woodhall and studio artist Marion Piper.
Woodhall approached Piper with the idea of connecting aural and visual elements, and they began their project PRIMER with conversations about the relationships between innovative New York based artists and musicians in the 1950’s, including, Morton Feldman, Phillip Guston, John Cage and Mark Rothko.
Feldman described this period as, ‘…one brief moment – maybe – say six weeks – when nobody understood art.’
Piper posted Woodhall a folded drawing, and Woodhall emailed two music ‘sketches. The work then developed individually, both participants mindful that their own work would be activated by the work of the other during the staging of the event. The role of movement and the provision of spaces within the music and painting became an important consideration. The title PRIMER suggests Piper and Woodall’s interest in fuelling a ‘beginning’, the preparation of a surface and situation that serves as a starting material for a process.
DiG | SEPTEMBER 2016
DiG opens tonight! 6.30-8.30pm at Arthouse1, Bermondsey, London. Curated by Jane Boyer the exhibition is showing work by Angelika Studios artist Gill Gregory, with London based artist Didi Edwards. The exhibition runs until 30th September.
'DiG presents two artists whose work seems utterly incongruent and dissimilar, but it isn’t the dissimilarity that is at odds here; it’s what the similarities turn in their furrows. The work of Didi Edwards and Gill Gregory share an uncanny similarity of structure - uncanny precisely because the work is so dissimilar. Didi’s bold, brash strokes of colour evoke an energetic tumultuous disposition, often within a centralised plane of activity. While there are few visible grids in her compositions, there is an underlying grid structure, which gives form and direction to the work, propelling the dynamism with reason and logic.'

Claudia Boese, Dale McGinnes, Shawn Stipling
Employing a heightened sensory alertness to their everyday experience of the world, Claudia Boese (below left), Dale McGinnes (image from projection, below centre)and Shawn Stipling (detail below, right) demonstrate this level of attentiveness through the engagement in the studio with their selected materials and thought processes. Employing colour, pigment, light and touch, they deal with and articulate their responses into paintings that become for us an open visual invitation to be present.
You are warmly invited to FICTION (With Only Daylight Between Us) v2 which is now installed at the studios. Curated as a 'social experiment' by Jeffrey Cortland Jones, an artist and Fine Art Professor at Dayton University, Ohio, the show includes 200 artists from 16 countries.

This week we remember with great affection our friend Brian Harris, who recently died after a long illness. Brian was always ready to help and advise us and to document studio life with one of his many cameras. Here he is pictured with Aimee Parrott photographing her work during the Angelika Space Programme Residency in 2013.
FICTION (With Only Daylight Between Us) v2 curated by Jeffrey Cortland Jones and installed at the studios in December. An international social experiment and a fantastic conversation catalyst.
A huge thank you to everyone who has visited the studios and engaged with us in 2016, we look forward to seeing you again in the coming year. Very best wishes for 2017
Ed, Deborah, Gill, Lindall, Cally, Marion, Ann
