Notes


The artwork depicts a repeated photographic image of a single tree taken by the artist found at the Paphos World Heritage Site in Cyprus. A different geometric coloured form is present in each of the 7 images whilst the tree makes reference to the idea of resisting the ossifying force of nature. The artist continually reuses materials and objects, allowing them to land and re-land. It is a gesture built upon preservation and longevity, principles at the heart of her practice. 

“Underpinned by geology and travel, the main focus of my practice is to reuse, recycle and re-appropriate found objects or imagery from the native landscape. Exchange is essential both in terms of the conversations and collaborations within each place I visit, but also the concerns, ideas and artworks I carry between them.

Assemblages range from wood to plaster, fabric to metal. Each material is carefully sourced to create a precise balance and specific narrative. The work evolves through a series of stages, from photography to print to three dimensional structures with successive layers gaining density until the final form emerges.

The objects I create go beyond a simple celebration of nature. They are rooted in a complex conversation within the various environments we construct and move through. It’s a call to be attentive to the minute details, to be aware of our place within the world and to be respectful. ” - Amy Stephens, 2021
