Stefanie Trow

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2020

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 graduating in Visual Arts in 2004, Stefanie spent a year travelling around the world, something she repeated more recently with her young family for 3 months whilst on maternity leave. Being immersed in different cultures and meeting all walks of life has undoubtedly influenced her art and ideas. 

Stefanie’s practice centre’s on the human gaze, inviting a relationship between the viewer and the viewed, questioning the act of seeing and being seen. She creates environments that hold the viewer’s attention; slowing down the process of looking to contrast with the sometimes-frantic pace of everyday life.

Her work stems from an assortment of images, both found and taken from life, predominately focusing on the figure. These images are carefully selected and cropped at crucial points, often obstructing or restricting the gaze, making us consider what can’t be seen or what exists outside the framework of the canvas.

Layering and removing of the paint plays a pivotal role in the creation of her work. In this way, each piece has its own history. Using a variety of tools and techniques, combined with painstakingly selected colour palettes, Stefanie creates work that is bold and vibrant in both colour and composition.

Stefanie and her work have featured in Musicians Baaba Maal’s music video “Gilli Men”. She now exhibits in Manchester and London, with her work collected globally.
