Stephen Todd

Paintings and drawings. My work explores English sea/landscapes and the human form. “How we look, determines how we internalise”.

I am a Sheffield based artist working primarily with seascape/landscape and the human form. My main methods of practice are painting, drawing and photographic images. The work has a strong sense of marks and lines from the instinctive to the deliberate, often incorporating text. It also makes direct reference to the materials being used. Drawing is an essential part of my practice and life drawing a discipline. I started life drawing in 1980 with John Epstein in London and continue to explore the instinctive approach he provoked across all my work. I am interested in the historical significance of places and events including personal connections. “How the past is recorded and represented determines how it is understood. How facts are constructed” In conclusion, my work is figurative in its inspiration and I seek to make pieces that are visually strong, aesthetic in quality and continue to affect the viewer.
