AMY STEPHENS
LAND | RELAND

September 6 – October 27, 2018
First Thursday opening September 6, 6:00 to 8:00pm (artist present)

For her first solo exhibition in the United States, London-based artist Amy Stephens presents a series of totemic forms incorporating objects and imagery sourced from nature, as well as steel and acrylic forms that respond to architectural features in the gallery. Stephens approaches sculpture with a minimalist aesthetic, working intuitively to create assemblages from materials suggestive of urban living. These materials are often sourced from local landscapes or by re-appropriating from previous works. Amy Stephens (b. 1981 London) is a recent Trustee of the Royal Society of Sculptors. She holds an MFA from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, UK and a BFA from the University of Reading, UK. A concurrent solo exhibition of Stephens’ work opens at William Benington Gallery in London, UK on September 27, 2018 and will feature natural objects sourced from Oregon.
