NOA AIR at RCA London

ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
The 2015                      Artists is Residence

The beauty of the Artist in Residence (AIR) is that no residency is the same. Organisation and artist come together in collaboration to form a new and special relationship where the artist works outside their usual studio space, wearing their hearts on their sleeves and sharing their most intimate creative processes with us – aren’t we lucky!
We were overwhelmed with the number of applications we received for our NOA AIR Programme this year and in a very difficult process, we selected eight incredibly talented artists for their variety in medium and for their colourful careers, who will be in residence for 2-3 days each.
We feel very privileged to announce this year’s Winter Exhibition Artists in Residence: 
Richard Twose | Julia Davis-Nosko | Renata Fernandez |  Kate Walters | Bartosz Beda | Heloise Delegue | Julien Masson | Lucy Williams
View their profiles and the AIR Schedule on our website here to find out more, with a sneak preview of their work and find links to their websites, social media, videos and blogs. 

Kate will have drawings from Iona, watercolours, experimental work, catalogues…she’ll be there from 24 – 26 October, from around 10 – 5 pm daily….

Un-maned space mission thumbnail small fileMr Foxy thumbnail samll file       Baboon and the city thumbnail A gradual realisation that I carry a responsibility towards the ‘others’ in society has lead me to this painterly exploration of the strange and mysterious relationship we have with animals in todays society. Moving to Cornwall has allowed me time and space to make more in depth work. Exploring on foot the wildness of West Penwith and it’s animals acts as a catalyst for future work. To complete the picture the other like minded artists I have met here both inspire and aid my practice.Humanimal will be an exciting exploration of the dialogue between humans and animals at this critical time for all species who share this planet. Tim Ridley.

This theme is very close to my heart. Stepping into the body of an animal, or having an animal stand watch over you, is a theme I often work with. New work explores the coming together of saints and animals, and the part of animals in their stories is crucial. For me animals represent the instinctual , wild part of our natures which is so often ignored, silenced, or forgotten. Animals can awaken in us a gentle way of seeing, of watching over, or responding with truthfulness and immediacy. They can also be a source of power, vision, protection, knowing and reassurance. They can remind us of who we are.
