Rather excitingly, the Busworks building, North Road, London N7, will, for a limited period, be exhibiting a selection of art from Italian born Irma Irsara. Her contemporary dyed paper pulp work, which is featured throughout the light and airy reception at Buswork’s United House, was produced in the open air on a North London allotment, where the natural light, weather conditions and the availability of organic material were important factors in defining the final work.
The process involved building up each image, layer upon layer, with dyed paper pulp, using hand-made paper techniques. Other materials, like onion skins, rhurbarb and artichokes were also incorporated into some of the work, either embedded in the pulp or stripped away, wet or dry, to reveal the layers beneath. There is a subtle sense of playfulness in these abstract works and something reassuring in the use of natural materials, homegrown from Irma’s allotment.
A spokesperson for Busworks commented Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ›We’re thrilled to be working with such an exciting artist and privileged to be exhibiting her work in United House. It has brought a new vibrancy to our work space and has given our tenants something to chat about in our communal lounge! Being a tenant of Busworks means being part of a dynamic business community where ideas are shared and businesses grow, so associating ourselves with such a compelling artist seemed a very natural thing to do.Ă˘â‚¬ĹĄ
