Artists & Artworks:

For highlights from the show with images of some of the works listed here:



Seeing things and telling people about it is what artists do best. Those who explore art are rewarded (or sometimes burdened) with new ways of seeing. 

How do we, as artists, experience the world, in order to share it in a way which affects our audience... and how do we actually want to affect our audience - what is our goal? What do we want to say to them? The answer to these questions will most certainly be different from individual to individual. 

Amato is fascinated by the way we present ourselves through our fashions - the way they reflect our culture and how they point to which way we have developed. This exploration is especially prevalent in the Couture/Luxury/Fast Fashion piece, but is more subtly present in her other works on show and in her accompanying zine.

Couture/Luxury/Fast Fashion
installation / mixed-media

Fashion comes in tiers, but how much of it really reflects our values? 
Do we have time to reflect on our values, and do we have the resources to live by them?

Catherine Harrington is an artist, a multi-award winning architect, and a diplomatic, yet staunch, environmental campaigner specialising in housing and regeneration. 

Catherine’s art practice connects with revealing unseen forces and marking territories that we traverse in our everyday lives. 


Project: 'Walking through a Workhouse, Hillside Park, London N19'

These works relate to Catherine’s group walk, where the siting of a demolished

workhouse is traced. The workhouse’s rooms, demarcated by Catherine’s on-site

installations, are imagined by participants as they contemplate inmates’ lives, now

erased from history.


Link to the Walk:



Site Map / Onsite Installations 'Walking through a Workhouse'

digital Prints of photos

Images of site installations situated in the following rooms of the workhouse: The Porter, The Dormitory, The Stone Yard, The Dead House.




work on paper

The administrators of the workhouse regarded people solely by the labour of their hands, a practice seen in some workplaces today.


'Rock / Rope'


Inmates confined to the workhouse broke up rocks and dismantled ship ropes – a regime of forced manual labour that underpinned the expansion of both cities and trade routes.


'Past Identity'


When entering the workhouse, inmates handed over their clothes and possessions, along with 'handing' over their past identity, before donning their workhouse uniform.

'Residual Contaminants (Beneath Our Feet)' 

sculptural installation

Residue metal deposits, created from the overflow of metal casting, were collected from a foundry floor, and re-assembled to draw an analogy with those contaminated liquids trapped underground in the fracking process.

Nathania Hartley instigates gatherings to bring people together and look at how our physical and societal surroundings impact on us and our relations with each other. 


Her work spans various forms including walking, writing, performance and interventions in public space.


For our Resurgence show at The Art Bypass Gallery, Nathania will be in residence collecting sounds, movements and words for a site-specific response to be shown in a joyful collective voicing at our private view party evening on Thursday 23rd June.

Eirini Kartsaki is a performance practitioner, writer and lecturer (East15 Acting School) and the author of Repetition in Performance: Returns and Invisible Forces.



'anomalopteryx' 2022



Anomalopteryx is a flightless bird, known as a lesser bird, only slightly taller than a turkey. A play of movement in and out of sense, in other words, speeches and sounds.

Debora is a London-based, Anglo-Italian artist, whose work reflects a desire to expose the often ridiculous internal logic and absurdities that govern our world and its different cultural systems, with a particular interest in how womankind is affected by societal pressures and norms.  To explore these ideas she uses a wide range of materials to create visual narratives that are often humorous and quite theatrical in nature. In addition to sculptural installation and printmaking, writing is a big part of her practice, both as a stand-alone practice and with titles acting to colour or subvert the meaning of her visual pieces. 

Her piece for 'Resurgence. What we are bursting to tell  you', is the first of a planned trilogy entitled 'What we / they had / have to play with', referencing different experiences of life under the pandemic in the UK.  

'Banana Bread House'

(from the series 'What they / we had / have to play with')

Irene Pulga is a mixed media artist. Her concerns range from the physical and primal to the

mystical world of dreams and symbols.

She’s also inspired by movement and dance-based practices.

Two qualities consistently evident in Irene’s art define her practice: rawness and her

search for aesthetic beauty. Her work constantly explore the tension between the two.



'Strings attached' 

monoprint, ink and gold leaf on paper)


'Strings attached 2' 

ink and gold leaf on paper


The 2 pieces are part of a bigger body of work that explores Irene’s concern with

aspects of our life that are hidden, behind our ‘regular’ reality we all live daily, i.e. our connections to higher states of consciousness, our knots and ties to the past and our ancestors…

Price: £200 each (unframed)

Truly beautiful and fascinating mixed-media* hand-made 'zines from the series are also available to view. Contact the artist directly if you have publishing or sales queries.

of wonder.

'Fruitless activities 2022'

A durational kinetic sculpture reflecting on connection and

"...real life is more extraordinary than all of the imagination." (Annette Messager)


Giorgos Theocharous: Every piece of my work is made to relate to the next by continuing the layout of the previous one creating a visually continuous artwork as I consider life events to be.


The materials I use are eclectic. I recycle with fragments from my previous works, watercolours depicting rivers, inks representing the transparency with spiritual power of crystals and abstract motifs with scenes from China about paper making from bamboo. Mono printing for uncanny textures and charcoal are used for hyper realistic story telling.
