THE WORK
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.

This approach is typical of her practice: through encompassing diverse media and methods of creation, Stephens’ main concern is with the reclamation of natural objects, architecture, the temporary nature of ‘things’ and minimalist aesthetics. In juxtaposing objects and textures from nature with materials and forms from urban architecture, Stephens aims to explore shifting patterns of meaning and the potential for narrative in how we understand relationships between landscape, architecture and sculpture.
