Stephanie Sandercock | Alchemy

Solo exhi­bi­tion of paint­ings | Join us for the open­ing night on Fri­day 17th June 17:30 onwards!

Highly textured paintings and 3D works on aluminium, rusted steel, wooden panel and canvas, using crushed limestone & marble plaster, acrylic with muscovite & biotite mica.

“I begin each new piece with a plan based on the form of the coastal rocks but sometimes other elements sneak in, like the ploughed fields, harbour wall, turning tide or shapes of the seaweed.

Creating textures with plaster is one of my favourite things and I like to layer paint and later sand it down to reveal surprising patterns. Using muscovite mica to reflect the light adds another magical element.

Like a mystery unravelling before my eyes the process takes me to unimagined places. There’s an aliveness that can’t be measured and this gives me a sense of playfulness, of freedom.

Art is a moving growing thing to explore and immerse myself in. I don’t know where it will lead but I am 100% engaged in the journey.”

Stephanie became a full member of The Penwith Society of Arts this year and this will be her fourth solo exhibition in the Studio Gallery.

Her work has been exhibited in London’s OXO Tower Chaiya Art Awards winner’s exhibition in 2021 and a selection of her work will be included in a group show this summer at Thompson’s London, 3 Seymour Place, 8th June - 2nd July 2022.

Review from ‘Godolphin to the Sea’ exhibition.

“Many will remember her first, Gwithian Rocks, acclaimed at the time as a promising debut, the works in her current show more than fulfil that promise, and should not be missed…. In every sense this is an impressive show. As appealing as it is accomplished.” - Frank Ruhrmund
