Stephen Todd

Paintings, drawings and photographic based images. My work explores English seas and landscapes. “How we look at the landscape determines how we internalise it”

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; charcoal an important medium 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.
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 are facts 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.
