Until June 2nd Maybe a Vole host work by Cher Morresey, Stewy Stencils and Phil Miller. There is also work by Vole’s permanent residents.
Cher Morresey is originally from New Zealand, Cher began her creative journey as a painter. She was introduce to assemblage art in 2006, on a visit to her artist brother
(Lynn Morresey). Lynn was living with Motor Neuron Disease and had lost his fine
motor skills, leaving him unable to hold a paintbrush. He had started making
assemblages and was greatly influenced by Dale Copeland. Intrigued, Cher further
researched And in 2008 began producing her own assemblage work. Psychology a theme Cher often returns to, she describes her work as presenting the ugliness of human nature in beauty; examining stereotypes, gender roles, relationships, sociology and fertility.
Stewy is local stencil artist from the Dalston/Stoke Newington area. His works form an expanding library of ‘life size’ hand cut stencils representing a series of
indigenous British animals and cult icons created in and around the UK since 2007. The ‘animals’ are specifically placed within an urban setting and are occasionally at odds with their surroundings.
Phil Miller is a freelance artist, photographer and film make, based in Stoke Newington. The photographs are developed by marrying imagery together through projections and multiple exposures to create new imagery and stories. A cat in New York over looks the beach at Cannes far removed from its usual habitat becomes a voyeur gazing over its new surroundings.
Maybe a Vole hosts a window host a display by Anna Sulan Masing,-From the Jungle. The display combines image projection, on a journey through dalston and shoredtich captured by the photographic eye of Katherine Leedale.
