Open studio coming up at ACAVA Studios

Epoh Beech (pic) is one of the artists exhibiting at an open studio day at ACAVA Studios this month. She specialises in charcoal drawings and has made the most exquisite animation film called Marriage of the Thames and the Rhine, about a reimagined time in 1613 when James I’s daughter married a German prince. The Thames and the Rhine were one river 10,000 years ago when England’s south east coast was stuck onto the continent at a place called Doggerland, and the journey of a sinuous seal tells the tale. Beech has to make 25 drawings for each second of animation, like one of her heroes, South African artist William Kentridge, the drawings are later displayed along with the films as finished pieces of art. epohbeech
