S K Stevens

'I was born in Liverpool in 1963, was educated at Liverpool Girls College, and went on to study Fine Art and History at Liverpool Institute of Higher Education. I returned to education in 1998 attending Goldsmiths College London from where I obtained a Post Graduate Diploma and Master’s Degree in Art Psychotherapy

My paintings explore a recurring visual sense of isolation and afford a space that the viewer can stamp their own sense of time and place, I deliberately title the paintings in a way that allows the viewer freedom to make the picture their own, whether a landscape or seascape or still life. The paintings have an immediacy, beyond which lays an emotional depth, rich in life, intensity and complexity. I apply the paint generously, but crucially the intimacy and fragility of the image is not lost in the process, the image is carefully considered yet spontaneously painted. The paintings allow the viewer to both lose themselves within the semi abstracted images yet also affords a place to locate a memory or a feeling, hopefully encouraging a deeper more personal and intimate response . I aim to respond to a landscape or object not replicate it, I paint what I feel and my memory and emotions inform the final piece. I aim to produce work that is distinctive and instinctive, that holds a rawness that is genuine, honest and never contrived. I approach each painting with a desire to capture a moment only, a fragment of time capturing an impression and emotional response that is gone almost before I have time to take it all in. There is nothing hidden in my paintings, nothing kept from the viewer about the work they see or the artist that painted them.'
