Graduates take over the Anise Gallery

Graduates from some on London's top art schools are being given the opportunity to showcase their final works in Central London.

Specially chosen pieces are now on display at the Anise Gallery, in Shad Thames, which aims to blur the lines between architecture and fine art.

Works in the Gallery's Summer Graduate Show 2018 include:  artists from Central Saint Martins, Slade School of Fine Art, Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths and Cambridge School of Art.

Featured Artists: 

Kimberley Beach studied MA Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art.

Using video, sound and installation, Kimberly investigates power dynamics and hierarchies through spoken narrative. She plays with the blurring of fiction and non-fiction to explore the complexities of social class hybridity. The often contradictory narratives of her films help draw attention to the manipulated construction of the other.


Lynda Beckett graduated in MA Photography at Central Saint Martins.

Her work revolves around the investigation of free, unrestricted languages which can be interpreted freely by viewers. In her drawings she combines the movement generated by her hand with movements out of her control, specific to the situation in which she creates.

Sophie Neville studied BA in Fine Art at the Cambridge School of Art.

Her practice combines embroidery, text-based art with contemporary socio-political and feminist subjects. Much of the text used in Sophie's work is appropriated from news headlines and social media, addressing how digital culture affect the way we discuss and interact with feminist politics.

Susie Olczak is half way through her MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art.

Through sculpture, photography and installations she explores how we perceive geometry, light and materials whilst moving through urban spaces. Her work is inspired by the momentum of objects in movement, the illusion of dynamic, patterns and geometries. We have followed Susie's work closely since first meeting her in 2013 and would recommend her as one to watch for next year.


Byungchan Kim, Goldsmiths. Paranoid Paradise

This work highlights the polarised opinions of Japanese Knotweed between English and Korean culture. The man and woman portrayed in his work were found dead after the man believed Japanese Knotweed was invading not only his garden but his mind. In stark contrast, in Japanese culture, the root of the plant is used  for medicinal purposes. The work becomes a gift to the couple who so tragically misunderstood the plant and its benefits.


The exhibition runs, 10 August - 7 September 2018.
