Every Friday after work, come to Cafe Phillies for Aperitivo Evenings...lovingly made canapés await you!
We are very happy to introduce to all our friends, Alma Tischlerwood! The photos i’ve taken don’t do justice to the quality of the work, but i strongly recommend you come and see them in the cafe to really appreciate them! In Alma’s latest series of Sky paintings childhood memories, such as lying in the grass, gazing in the sky are revisited. The artist sets up a thought-provoking scenario by placing a Sky painting next to an abstract painting depicting the Burberry Brit Eau de Cologne for men pattern. The human mind is versatile and can inhabit different realities simultaneously. But who is to say whether the reality of rectangles and proportions are any less ‘intense’ than the experience of gazing into a Summer sky? For the viewer, they are a matter of personal preference and perception. The visitor is invited to invent their own connections between these paintings. In her work, Alma focuses on the presentation of colour and patterns, characterised with a witty irony, suggesting a philosophical world in which materiality and language invoke one another. Shortly after her studies of Fine Art (MA) at the Munich Art Academy 1980 –1986 (aside from many other Awards) Alma won the prestigious Arts Council of Munich’s Annual Award for painting. Since settling in London (1988) she has been greatly supported by The Arts Council England, The Goethe Institute and Council Général de I’Oise for projects to travel, work and exhibit in India, Brazil, Chile, France and Switzerland. Alma’s art is represented in many collections some of which include Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Sumitumo Bank, European Patent Office Collection, Den Haag, Reuters London, Vera Engelhorn, New York, Arts Council Munich, Arts ~Council EnglandCinven amongst many others. Her work is presented it the Sonja Roesch Gasllery Houston, TX, USA Alma recently joined the Friends of Holland Park to pursue her interest in urban nature.

‘Kjell was born in the Netherlands amongst dense woods, open fields and friendly cows. It was here where the inspiration for drawing began. His artwork has been exhibited across Europe and in London the Oxo Tower and The Underdog Gallery are amongst venues where his drawings have been shown. Kjell uses ink, pencil, gouache and pieces of ‘Liberty’ fabric to create unique, wonderfully odd drawings that bring folky woodlands right to the centre of London. ‘
