Harvey and Judy have worked alongside one another since they first met in London in 1965. The city was then full of artists and ideas. Their work is very different but they both share a passion for abstract painting and printmaking.

They have exhibited nationally and internationally . They currently divide their time between Brighton and their studio home in Lezan, Le Gard France. Both are active members of APEC and Harvey is an exhibiting member of The London Group.

APEC OPEN STUDIOS Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 May

The Studio.

When the Romanian-born sculptor Brancusi died in 1957 he bequeathed his art to France, where he had spent his working life, on condition it be shown only within the context of his studio. Taking the studio as a starting point, APEC artists offer some points for reflection upon the studio itself. An imaginative site, hotly contested, it is so much more than just a place to make work, offering an economy of exchange different from the prevailing system’s.

Days open: 18th,19th May 2013

Opening hours: 12.00 – 17.00

Additional days: Private View 18:00-20:00 on Friday 17 May 2013

Former APEC member Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva has been selected by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Macedonia to represent the Republic of Macedonia at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia.

Elpida presents a major new installation work, Silentio Pathologia, drawn from her original proposal to the Ministry of Culture of Macedonia, which reflects upon the movement, migration and impact of medieval plagues through Europe (and city states such as Venice) and considers contemporary concerns about international migratory illnesses such as coronavirus. This ambitious work will include pure woven silk, silkworm cocoons, albino rat skins, curtains of steel sheet and, subject to permissions, live rats. Drawing upon her established and highly regarded practice of extended periods of working and embellishing multiple objects into large-scale art installations, Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva presents a signature artwork for the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia.

Invisible imprint

Can you describe a photograph that doesn’t exist but is imprinted in your mind?
Is there a photograph you wish you had taken or one that got lost or destroyed before it was developed or printed?
