Ntiense Eno-Amooquaye’s practice integrates the visual, written and spoken word through print, text, image and live performance. Amooquaye creates stage sets and garments to perform her writing. For 1000 Patterns at Texture Museum Kortrijk, Belgium (2017) she developed hand screen printed works on linen and printed silk garments from poems referencing themes from the history of fashion and textile. Her most recent performance ‘The Vocal Project’ at Peer, London (2018), alongside fellow contributors to art writing magazine PaperWork 3, explores the intersections of writing, scenography and performance.
Selina Helene has been a member of Intoart since 2005. Her work reflects her interest in shape, line and colour.
Mawuena Kattah’s work draws upon an extensive personal archive of family photographs taken in Ghana spanning a number of decades, plus more recent studio photographs of family taken in London. She brings people and pattern together in complex, vibrant compositions. Her work embodies a strong sense of community, creating environments that invite the subjects of her portraits and others to share in a growing social fabric of people, artworks, ceramics and textiles.
Doreen McPherson makes distinctive and detailed portraits. McPherson work has been included in a number of group presentations including MADMuseé, Liege (2011), No Soul for Sale, Tate Modern (2010), Whitechapel Gallery, London (2009) and Studio Voltaire, London (2010 and 2007).
Philomena Powell has been a member of Intoart since 2005. Her work reflects her interest in natural forms.
Clifton Wright has pursued portraiture for over a decade, working in response to family albums, newspaper and magazine pictures, documentation of exhibitions, characters from science fiction and popular culture. From the beginning (he started making portraits in the Intoart studio in 2007) the faces in his drawing have been woven into and enmeshed with tessellations of abstract shapes. The shadows playing across a face gain edges, become independent and find echoes in negative space. The way that face and space fit, knot and flow together are clearly the focus of the work, as much as the specific forms of any particular face.
