The Art of Escapism by Amy Mizrahi is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.
“The first time I heard of Amy Mizrahi she was co-curating the Sloe Gallery in central Manchester, a small independent gallery run by ex-students from Manchester School of Art.
Although Sloe was located in a dark and damp basement, the artwork exhibited was diverse, exciting and experimental, and Amy’s work shone out.
A few years later when we started the Weavers Factory I found Amy’s card in my pocket. I emailed her and we met for a coffee in the Northern Quarter.
I was intrigued at how open, down-to-earth and approachable she was, despite the disturbing and emotional nature of her work. We awarded her the Joan Charnley Bursary to exhibit at the Weavers Factory in 2020.
The last couple of years have been really exciting for Amy, her paintings have been exhibited in London, Manchester and Los Angeles, and there is a brand new depth of confidence to her work.
Her move into Surrealism has cemented her journey towards a more obtuse yet personal approach, with each of her paintings containing a myriad of imagery."
