About the event

An exhibition of work by Muswell Hill artists Feza Erkeller-Yuksel and Helen Lee showcasing their passion for London from scenes that capture the calm of suburban streets to those that celebrate the grandeur of its most iconic landmarks. Their painting is separated by approaches to subject matter that are wholly unique, but their work also reveals a cohesiveness that reflects the support and encouragement they have shown each other throughout their work and friendship.

Erkeller-Yuksel paints in oil and the energy her work encapsulates builds upon the harmonies she forges between such oppositional aspects as colour, form, landscape and architecture. Her expressive style pulls the viewer in, creating a sense of atmosphere and place that is as tangible as it is resonant. exhibition of scenes from the Thames and those of Cappadocia – the region where her grandparents’ town is – draws on the dual influence her background and her life in London has had on her work.

Lee’s work is also inspired by her life in the city,she presents a series of studies that focus on the city’s northern suburbs. She paints with watercolours and strives to incorporate the physicality and definition of architectural structures into her work. Using ink and wash to elucidate the shapes and forms that constitute the street scenes she captures, Lee’s paintings are both precise and uncanny in their depiction of London. Through a combination of expressive, loose marks and a measured attention to detail, Helen creates a rich impression of urban life that draws just as much on subtlety as it does on the vibrancy of the city.
