Stefany Hemming  Bio         Exhibitions:   Raw    Nesting


Stefany Hemming is a Vancouver artist with a highly unique process. Her work is exhibited internationally.

Hemming writes, "I am interested in the fundamental communication inherent in mark making. The immediacy of a quick stroke can expose an individual, locating them in a precise time, place and frame of mind. The line betrays the hand that made it. In my work I strive to capture motion, intention and motive. I have developed a reductive method of working that allows me to draw with paint, making fluid lines in sweeping strokes, at any width or speed. In my process, I work quickly and on a large scale.

I work within a strict set of formal parameters: one tool, one layer of paint and one limited block of time. In this intense and gestural process, spontaneous movements or raw actions occur. Awkward, elegant, clumsy, confident, all marks inform the work and all have equal importance. Accepting every mark made, nothing is re-worked, painted over or shaded. Some of the concerns that dominate my work are deception, vitality, trust, loss, aging, and lust.

This body of work is an exploration of painting as an obsessive, ritualistic, instinctive practice which embodies all the contingency, uncertainty and instability of the real. It promotes painting as documentation of the intangible, evidence of one's humanity."
