Stephen’s pictures begin on location. When a subject has been internalised through extensive observational drawing he imaginatively weaves allegorical narratives in a variety of media in his studio. He is interested in what lies below surface appearance, realigning archetypal imagery for an agnostic and fragmented world.
Painting & Drawing
Stephen Bird is taking part in the upcoming Summer open studios
Paintings and drawings are displayed in the four ground floor rooms of the cottage. Further work, including sculptures, pots and constructions can be viewed in the garden. The cottage itself dates back to the eighteenth century, converted from two dwellings into one in 1856. The workshop in the garden was once part of the village blacksmith’s.
