STEFANIE TROW

Stefanie Trow was born in South Yorkshire in 1982. She pursued her talent and love for art from an early age - encouraged by both parents, aspiring artists themselves. After graduation, Stefanie spent a year travelling around the world, immersed in different cultures and meeting all walks of life, which some may view has undoubtedly influenced her art and ideas. Stefanie has always been fascinated by the human form, using the body and face as a vehicle to transcend her thoughts and feelings on the world around her. Stefanie wants the viewer to be intrigued, to hold their attention (especially in an age of image bombardment), draw them closer to the details of the work, discovering the layers of brush strokes that have been built up to create each piece. This creates a painting that up close, can be seen in a semi abstract way but from afar remains realistic, enticing the viewer to interact and re-examine what they see in front of them. Her present work stems from carefully selected glossy magazine cuttings. Influenced by her own compositional cut and de-voiding the image of its original context, the subject then undergoes a multi-step process of representation. Initially the paintings start out as an exact representation, then become distorted and deconstructed, presenting a final image that is bold, beautiful but unnerving, challenging the viewing perceptions of beauty. Stefanie achieves this in her use of colour and painterly style, creating conflicting tensions within the imagery and surface of the paint; anxiety and urgency juxtaposed with calm and serenity. In doing this she hopes to reshape the original content and story of the imagery and project her own feelings of unease within a society engrossed with perfection. She has completed numerous private commissions and most recently was asked to feature in Artist Baaba Maal’s music video “Gilli Men”. She now lives and works in Manchester.
