Stephanie McClory, Whisper(detial), 2020, acrylic on canvas, 81.5 x 81.5cm

Hidden, Stephanie McClory
Sat 29 August – Sun 4 October 2020

Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm

Stephanie McClory is a regional based painter and the 2018 winner of the Eurobodalla Art Prize category of the long running, biennial Basil Sellers Art Prize. Stephanie celebrates her first solo exhibition, Hidden which is an extension of her award winning work, Some days are rough.

Stephanie’s practice uses hyper-realism and elements of chiaroscuro techniques to explore vulnerability and thoughtful moments of contemplation in her subjects. The viewer is given a glimpse into a private moment, the aim of which is to suspend the emotional state of her sitter, while evoking an emotional response in the viewer.

Anchored in monochromatic surroundings, subjects are absorbed in their own intimacy, which is achieved through a layered manifestation of light with a scale and quality alluding to renaissance or noir cinema.
