Primitivistic, essential and elemental; the sculptures of Stephanie Quayle link man to nature, animal to human, through the organic material of clay itself.
Working on a farm, the relationship that lies between beast, both domestic and wild, and human is of central concern; “I’m interested in how much we align or distance ourselves from them – how they reflect, question and return our gaze. How they see into our souls and connect us to the natural world and force of nature inherent within.”
UK/RAINE: Emerging Artists from the UK And Ukraine is the first ever open competition for all emerging artists from the UK and Ukraine aged 18-35. The aim of the competition is to find and support the most imaginative and talented young artists, including students on BA and MA courses who are living and working in the UK or Ukraine or born in either country.
The competition received over 10,000 entries by 2,100 artists and the 30 sortlisted artists were chosen from each of the five categories: installation, new media, painting, sculpture and street art by a panel of internationally renowned judges. UK/RAINE continues the collaboration between the Firtash Foundation and Saatchi Gallery as part of the Days of Ukraine in the UK festival.
