Jessamyn Bailey

In the Cornwall Corset Series, Jessamyn Bailey frees the corset, allowing it to become part of the natural landscape. The corset acts as a ready made symbol for the pressures experienced by female bodies applied by both society and the self. Here the discarded and open corsets invoke thoughts of escape. In this collection of 35mm pinhole photographs each image is printed 'full format' to show the edges of the negative in the print.

Archway Methodist Church, Archway Close, N19 3TD. June 25th - July 5th, Mon-Fri 11am- 5.30pm, Sat-Sun 10am – 9pm. Closed Wednesday. Private View Saturday 27th June, 6-9pm. Also exhibiting at Freightliners Farm, Sheringham Road, London, N7 8PF. Opening times: Wednesday to Sunday - 11am to 4pm.

Stella Michael

‘I love stepping into the mystery of my painting, not knowing what will show itself once I start. I am excited by the different paths I am led down, and the anticipation of what is created. They end up so different to how they start; I love the magic of it, the fluidity, their aliveness and passion’.

Tutte Newall

Tutte Newall lives and works in London. She studied at City and Guilds of London School for Art, and since graduating last year has exhibited a number of times including at the Affordable Art fair and Sarah Myerscough Fine Art in Mayfair. The context for her work references a Utopian garden with each image a luminescent vitrine, bending the laws of perspective in order to create scenes that are impossible in reality.

Frederico Penteado

Frederico Penteado aims to express a poetical vision. His paintings stem from memory and imagination rather that copying images directly from Nature. He harnesses the properties of acrylic paint on paper and canvas to produce a range of simultaneous light effects either transparent or opaque and impasto to create corporeal but shifting image scapes. He takes inspiration from such great painters as Turner, Friedrich, Malevich, Rothko and Baselitz.

Archway Methodist Church, Archway Close, N19 3TD. June 25th - July 5th, Mon-Fri 11am- 5.30pm, Sat-Sun 10am – 9pm. Closed Wednesdays. Private View Saturday 27th June, 6-9pm.

Emma Purchase

Emma Purchase utilizes creatures of the aquatic as a stimulus and a reference. The fish represents both a removal from known experience to a transformed identity and surrounding, which respectively implies a magical or utopian promise and yet paradoxically manifests a futile endeavor, as complete transcendence or connection is impossible due to the barriers imposed.

Archway Methodist Church, Archway Close, N19 3TD. June 25th - July 5th, Mon-Fri 11am- 5.30pm, Sat-Sun 10am – 9pm. Private View Saturday 27th June, 6-9pm.

Sandy Suffield

Sandy Suffield began stitching on found paper bags as a way to use the time on her commute. Bags were from various American stores, its product often dictating what was stitched; coloured pills on a pharmacy bag, teeth on an old sugar bag. Thread is from thrift stores and flea markets. Since returning to the UK the work is larger and less adhoc but still demonstrates the same interest in colour and graphic form. Much of the recent work is word based and attracted to the back of pieces; Sandy has begun to stitch palindromes.

52a Bickerton Road, Archway, N19 5JS. 11am-6pm Saturday 27th June and 11am-5pm Sunday 28th June.
