Ravelin interviews Amy Stephens about Land | Reland, an exhibition on two continents

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.

Final day: Ben Buswell's The Story is Not the Story

Today is the final day to take in Ben Buswell's installation of photo-based and glass sculptures. Buswell's works navigate spaces in-between: for example, the wall-hanging photos vibrate between repetition and uniqueness, while the fused glass sculptures seem both soft and immovably solid. Perhaps the most important quality, however, is how these works seem to respond to the viewer's movement through the space – something that requires presence to experience. Today is your last chance. Upfor is open until 6:00 pm.

As always, individual works may be seen by appointment after the exhibition closes. Please inquire for pricing and availability.
