22 ARTIST PROFILE Stephanie Wilkinson
The Balcony View, 2016 acrylic on canvas, 90 x 90 cm
ravel, still life and interiors are constant themes throughout Stephanie Wilkinsonâ€™s semi-abstract paintings; transformed through her vibrant colour palette of blues and greens, warmed with expressions of pinks and yellows. Having grown up in the north east of Brazil, motifs of the easy-going landscape such as palm trees and other sculptural plants permeate her work, with new layers of inspiration constantly added through exploration of new locations. Now based in the UK and working from her studio in Teddington, south west London, the artist has developed two distinct techniques when painting, whether in acrylic or pen. The
first sees her using paint and charcoal in a mixed process of spontaneous and considered actions; tightening or loosening the composition, overpainting and erasing. For her graphic pen works on paper where such editing is not possible, her skills have been sharpened resulting in artworks of a more detailed and compact nature. This year will see Wilkinson continue to exhibit her work in different venues across the UK. She is currently preparing a new collection of paintings and prints for her first major London show at The Barbican Library, taking place between the 29th June and 27th July 2017. stephaniewilkinson.co.uk firstname.lastname@example.org
