MY EAST END: PAST AND PRESENT

Noriko Michigami

December 2019

Noriko's works reflect the landscape of East London, where she has lived and worked for many years. She is drawn to the distinctive characteristics of the area - its sights, sounds and smells - and the changes to the landscape.

 

Her practice has been heavily influenced by Western art as well as her Japanese origins, and the concept of being ‘Monono Aware’ – having an empathy towards the transience of things. She paints urban landscapes that she finds interesting for reasons ranging from the colour or atmosphere to the composition. She is struck by the transformative nature of light and the fleeting visual sensations that ensue, and is often attracted to evening views of the city – which can be full of hope, vibrancy, excitement, romance, or even isolation. She also likes recording the history of cityscapes that are constantly evolving.

Noriko Michigami is a painter based in Tower Hamlets

PEACE UNDERNEATH

Husna Parvin

Oct - Dec 2019

I am inspired by nature and love spending time visiting parks, gardening and flower arranging. This inspired me to create a series of flower paintings. I love capturing their beauty and amazing colours in paint. I chose the title, ‘Peace Underneath’ because when I paint I feel like I’m in a peaceful place.

 

One of the flowers I’ve painted grows in Bangladesh and is called ‘Kodom'. Painting this flower brought back a lot of sweet memories for me because I grew up in Bangladesh and it was where I first started painting, when my uncle bought me a set of watercolours. When I moved to the UK, it took me a while to get into painting again but I gradually started attending part-time art courses and having exhibitions around East London, including my recent solo-show at Husk. I love meeting other artists and people from different backgrounds and sharing my passion with them."

Husna is a local artist who primarily works in oils, acrylics and watercolours
