Stephanie Forrest is a London-based artist and tutor. Her practice is a lyrical, painterly exploration of light and the figure. With a background in art history, having studied at the Courtauld Institute and University of Edinburgh before attending the Royal Drawing School, her work combines a wide scope of references with an intuitive creative approach. Her subjects are often in motion – a chorus of dancers or figures in water – rendered with fluid, unpredictable materials and techniques which offer flow and the possibility of chance discoveries. Her recent series of night bathers have a fluid atmosphere, combining myth, memory and imagination to create a poetic sense of place. Her work is in The Royal Collection and she was awarded the ACS Drawing Prize in 2019.
