Artist Residency with Natalie Anastasiou

Saturday 09.06.18 to Sunday 10.06.18

Natalie graduated from Chelsea College of Arts with a Masters in Fine Art in 2016 and has since been working from a studio in Clapham Common, London.

Natalie’s art practice decontextualises and dislocates eccentric characters from magazines and film stills to form untold narratives through painting and video art.

“Appropriating the real into the surreal, my paintings depict characters on the edge. Using aesthetics as a mask I transport them into a whimsical purgatory where they almost become ornamental in form. Capturing the opulence and excess of contemporary culture and addressing the gap between our growing self-awareness and social disconnection. ”

During her time at GreatArt, Natalie plans to experiment with some new materials, looking at the relationship between paint and pen and how they can transform a traditional painting into a contemporary mixed media portrait.
