Working Space & Absent Artists

Liss Llewellyn is delighted to announce its latest online exhibition – Working Space & Absent Artists.

This selection of works takes its cue from an exhibition at Charleston, Absent Artists, which presents images of artists’ studios and working spaces where the figures themselves are conspicuously absent. From tokens of artistic practice found in the cluttered corners of studios (such as that of Phoebe Peto Willetts), to the quirky entrance hall of Barbara Jones’ Hampstead home, what do these different spaces, and the ways in which they’re depicted, say about each artist?

A number of these works are on display at our recently opened exhibition, Creative Spaces: Artists in the Early Decades of the 20th Century. These can be viewed at the Watts Gallery Artists’ Village. This exhibition marks the continuation of our collaboration with the Watts Gallery, and proceeds from the sales will support them by raising important funds for their Art for All Community Learning Programme.
