Meet the Artists - Ripe Peaches #02

With the second of our RIPE graduate showcase exhibitions in launching soon, over the next few weeks we’ll be introducing you to the Ripe Peaches, our 2021 cohort of talented WSA and Solent graduates. Get to know our artists featuring in RIPE LIVE: Ripe Peaches #02/😑-🥰 and find out more about their practice below.

 

Jenny Andrews

Jenny’s practice explores the connections and poetic links between art and architecture. She is interested in architectural forms and materials, the utility of the building, its cultural and structural history and its environment. Using sculpture and projection, her work documents cities and spaces, the people who inhabit them and how they exist as a link between the present and the past.

Christina Karava

Christina is a digital artist. She makes soundscapes and compositions with an electronic aesthetic. These audio tracks are sometimes overlaid with video components that sync or contradict the sound. Her work is an attempt to understand how our everyday activities, habits and attitudes shape human behaviour.

Tiffany Struwig

Tiffany is an artist and a curator. She uses traditional craft techniques, such as embroidery and DIY dolls houses to consider contemporary issues and contemporary exhibition spaces. She works collaboratively with other artists to realise miniature exhibitions as part of the Struwig Miniature Gallery project. Her embroidery works depict pixelated, digital imagery in contrast to the domesticity and nostalgia often associated with the medium.

Charlotte Wardner

Charlotte works with found objects such as childhood toys, beads, jewellery and textiles to create assemblages and sculptures. Her practice explores themes of memory, nostalgia, innocence, imagination and loss, resulting in odd, unsettling and macabre figures and forms.

Through portraiture, she attempts to document more than just an image of a person, but their connection with the world, their spirit and character.
