‘Liths’ is an exhibition of new sculptural works by Hackney-based artist Tanoa Sasraku. Merging digital and handmade processes, Sasraku works with sculpture, tapestry, print and moving image to explore place and memory in relation to British and Ghanaian history.

For her exhibition at PEER, Sasraku presents Liths, a series of works that comprise sculpture and print. Lining the gallery floor are five freestanding rectangular wooden sculptures. Embedded within the monolithic black cases are sheets of hand-made Awagami Kozo Natural Japanese Paper, each depicting enlarged scans of fragments of stitched and embossed ink and earth pigment-stained newsprint, representing elements of an ongoing series of smaller works that Sasraku calls Terratypes (2022).

Open: Wednesday-Saturday until 20th May 2023

Hannah Lister () is one of our graduates currently exhibiting at the RA Schools Show 2022.

Hannah Lister photographs her surroundings, embracing chance and allowing shapes and formations to arise and repeat naturally. Her photographs become spaces in which the unexpected manifests and it is this subtle element of mystery that drives her practice forward.

In the darkroom she is guided by the intricacies of the analogue process and the aesthetic potential of its slippages. She bends and manipulates the light, working with crop, scale, repetition, inversions and modes of display to create atmospheres that flit from light spaciousness to brooding intensity.  

With thanks to and

Luke Samuel () is one of our graduates currently exhibiting at the RA Schools Show 2022.

Luke’s paintings suggest space that is defined by its relationship to an exterior plane. References to building interiors serve as a motif to speculate upon the way in which paintings convey their own interiority, and from which they seemingly speak.
 
Repeated gestures and individual works are fragmentary in relation to a larger studio process. The paintings denote memories of days spent in the studio.

Gallery IX, Burlington House after the explosion of a German bomb in 1917, 1917

An air-raid on 24 September 1917 caused considerable damage to the galleries in Burlington House. Money was received from the Government to assist with the repairs which were completed just in time for the preparation of the Summer Exhibition. A small tablet inserted in the doorway leading to Gallery IX commemorates the event.

Sofía Clausse (b.1989, Buenos Aires, Argentina) previously studied at the Rhode Island School of Design.
 
Her practice is a research into repetition, time, language, and translation through the use of painting, paper, text, and ceramics. Custom tools and systems are continuously invented to create an ongoing visual lexicon that collapses the distinction between semantics and semiotics – signs and meanings endlessly contain each other.  
 
Clausse’s thinking is guided by a textile logic and a circular use of material. Elements interweave and extend like a labyrinthic path across the practice, and what was discovered or what remains in one piece informs and transforms into the next. 
 
This path of the practice becomes a line through time, that loops and knots, following itself and connecting its ends left loose. The line entangles with other knots on other lines, creating a mesh where playing becomes thinking becomes making.

USA based contemporary painter and art educator Chitra Ramanathan was a 2005 Visitor Artist invitee to the RA Schools, when the Keeper had invited the artist to present her body of work and conduct student tutorials. The artist's unique body of work portrays happiness as a visual entity.

Her curious blend of intense colors and myriad of textural materials seem to glow in any light and provide a feast for the eyes. Chitra’s work is considered ideal for display in any luxury venue or interior by collectors and designers alike. The artist creates stunning abstract paintings, large-scale works acquired by various art institutions and commissioned by private entities within the U.S., such as the MGM Resorts, permanent installation at the Bellagio Las Vegas, and public artworks installed in the permanent collection of the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
