September always feels like the start of something special, like the moment when we open a brand new notebook.
Our co-curator Kitty has brought together 6 artworks which capture that special September feeling. You'll see the curation falls into two visual halves, to symbolise the move to autumn for the Northern Hemisphere, and to spring for the Southern.
There are three more introspective and meditative works, by Steven Siegel, Alice Marinelli and Oliver Schwarzwald. The images of Steven's chess player in Washington Square Park and Alice's self-portrait in her bedroom in Rome have been taken many decades, and thousands of miles, apart. Both speak to those moments of silence and stillness that the colder months often bring. And Oliver Schwarzwald's Shirt Tree reminds us that the summer days - and the memories we made - are not far behind us.
The other three works have an energy and dynamism to represent the start of the warmer, lighter months. Both Yuki Shima and Jenny Woods show us the magic of old-fashioned film - rather than digital - photography. Jenny walks around her NYC neighbourhood with her old Nikon camera around her neck, capturing those perfect moments that are otherwise forgotten. Yuki painstakingly sets up his camera on a long exposure to capture the act of tagging a wall, using a light pen. If you look hard enough, you can spot his almost-ghostly outline.
The selection includes a Kind Commission by Nadia Nizamudin, the opportunity to commission a unique artwork, just for yourself or for someone you love. This could be the moment to connect with something wonderful. See the full selection of commissions here.
