DESCRIPTION: Art4Space Studios, Jeffery’s Road, McCall Close, Stockwell, London.
Weirdly enough, I used to live, for over a decade long, in Beckett House, Grantham Road, Stockwell, London; which is almost opposite Jeffery’s Road. I remember I used to visit Jeffery’s Road Library, regularly. Art4Space building is located further down below the Library…the which Library has been pulled down, now…just off Jeffery’s Road, at McCall Close; and, I never even knew anything about this place.
In fact, it wasn’t until when I’d actually gone and moved away from living in Stockwell, to go and live elsewhere; then, one day returned back to re-visit as a student interested in learning how to build Mosaic’s; that I first came across both the building/and, the artist community that lives inside there.
There was another visitor to the Art4Space building, passing along through the garden; so, I said to him please stop and take a photo of me, together with the painter being included. Of course, the painter himself, Geoff Routh, never ever stops painting…; he simply just completely ignored us whilst continuing to finish off his artwork.
I recall phoning up one of Geoff’s gallery dealers; and, asking them how much would one of his paintings cost? Their reply to me was anything between 5 grand up to 9 grand. I guess, it’s going to take me an awful lot of saving up…before I can get to afford buying even ‘one’ of his precious ‘photographic like’ artworks!
