MATTER

In this ongoing body of work, nature becomes a metaphorical figure of the human psyche.

With « Matter », Stephanie Caldy aims to « dive into the skin of the Earth, the biofilm which covers the globe and carries all the activity of life for 4 billion years ».

In these telluric paintings on linen canvas, the contrasty though soft palette is at service of the gesture of painting, which becomes a performative act involving the artist’s entire body.
The artist becomes here a vector of expression of the nature that surrounds her.
