Print Artist: Stephanie Rew
Stephanie Rew was born in 1971 and spent her early years in Edinburgh. She studied art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee.
Stephanie Rew primary subject matter is the female form. Her paintings and limited edition prints are created with a sense of ambiguity, faces invariably hidden with the human form often just emerging from the darkness. The nude is a recurring motif in Stephanie's art works. Tone and form as well as strong light and colour is what inspires her.
Stephanie Rew has a real talent for capturing the female form. This is equally true whether the figures are clothed or not. She successfully highlights glances and passing thoughts and emotions in her art works. Her more recent paintings and limited edition prints featuring costumes – everything from the corset and bustle to the kimono – communicates a strong sense of elegance and serenity of the female form. Stephanie’s lightness of hand is evident in the images of delicate fabrics draped across the figures.
Stephanie Rew’s paintings and art prints always have a sense of ambiguity – with faces half hidden and the human form often just emerging from the darkness. The nude is a recurring motif to her work and has developed using drapery and pattern in combination with the figure. Tone and form as well as strong light and colour is what inspires her. Recently she has been concentrating on the juxtaposition of tonality and texture whilst keeping a private, reflective mood with the work.
Stephanie Rew cites a number of influences on her paintings and art prints. Early influences included British artists Alison Watt and Jenny Saville. Rew has also been heavily influenced by the Baroque style and utilises a combination of Old Masters techniques with her own alla prima approach to painting. Her use of glazes is important to the finished article – creating an inner glow to the work. Caravaggio’s trademark use of chiaroscuro and strong colour created by glazing techniques has inspired Stephanie's work for the last decade.
