Our third featured artist for OPEN, the community art event coordinated with Team London Bridge and taking place at London Bridge Hotel is ceramicist Henrietta MacPhee, exhibiting three pieces here.  The exhibition looks to promote those talented artists living or working in Southwark, where our hotel is sited.

Over 100 artists submitted work for consideration with 14 being asked to participate in this first phase of the London Bridge Hotel OPEN which gives potential buyers the opportunity to see an artwork in an environment more akin to a contemporary home. All OPEN art works can be purchased and the exhibition runs until June 2019.

Henrietta MacPhee is a British artist (b.1985). She graduated with a Diploma in Ceramics from City Lit in 2017 and works from her studio based in South London. Her artistic practice is centred in ceramics.

Modelling by hand and painting on the clay she creates a language that blends the visual and tangible to create entertaining illusions and a sense of complexity that traverses the border between 2D and 3D.

Through a fresh child-like perspective of the world, she portrays scenes of poetic tenderness and humour, interweaving metaphors for embracing life’s diversity of peoples and their cultures. It is playful, representing an innocent yet thought provoking relationship with the material form.
