Read Alec Coiro’s interview with Amy Stephens about her cross-continental exhibitions, currently on view at William Benington Gallery in London and here at Upfor, via Ravelin Magazine.
Amy Stephens’s work brings our attention to the land. Central to this focus is the way she allows her material to speak, and the way she uses the gallery space as means of amplifying that voice. While it’s important to learn the background behind the materials and objects she employs, it is equally true that the work is impressive on its own in a way that is very much in line with the fascination with the sublime throughout the history of art.
