Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

With roots based in drawing, this collection of abstract work explores solidity, texture and form, produced using a limited palette allowing focus and direction. Set within the context of social and political instability, and using that as starting point, the paintings depict forms that at first glance appear quite solid, some even being walls of black paint, but on closer inspection give a sense of their fragility and impending collapse.

The paintings are physical, both in technique and presence, but ultimately attempt to communicate on an emotional level. Composed largely intuitively, it is in the fundamental components of vitality, drive and feeling, the things that epitomise being alive, that are being conveyed in these pictures.

Alannah, from the Irish Gaelic phrase a leanbh meaning "O child".

Artist Profile

Born: 1983

Hometown: Ashton under Hill, Worcestershire UK

Based in: Hampton, Worcestershire UK

Stephen Whatcott is a self-taught artist working in Worcestershire, UK, producing often minimalist paintings which occasionally spill out into more expressive or lyrical compositions. With roots based in drawing, his work tends to utilise line and form. These largely monochrome abstract paintings explore solidity, texture and composition, often executed in a seemingly aggressive, or at least expressive, manner.

In 2015 Whatcott won the Painting category of the Secret Art Prize open art competition and in 2018 was shortlisted for the Rise Art Prize.

Whatcott is represented by various galleries and consultants based in London, Chicago, Glasgow and Paris. His work is held in private collections worldwide.
