Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

Since 2008, observational drawing has been the essence of Stephanie Eather's art practice with the studio interior being a constant subject. In 2019, the Melbourne based artist began travelling to regional Victoria and New South Wales to connect with her family history, and to immerse herself in environments, experiences and spaces shared by her ancestors.

Core to her practice, Eather engages in the alchemy of making willow charcoal by hand; all drawings are made from the local willow trees cut, peeled, chopped and roasted in the open fire. Working with handmade charcoal on paper aligns with her compulsion to glide across the page, encouraging an autonomous line with which she imprints her autobiographical mark.

Eather is dedicated to mimetic drawing and considers drawing an avenue of internal and physical ‘excavation’; the physicality of ‘sculpting’ a flat surface induces cultivation for internal contemplation. Her work is autobiographical, and drawing is used as her process of mental and emotional circulation.

Eather
completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Drawing) at RMIT in 2009 and a Graduate Certificate in Art History at Melbourne University in 2013. She has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australiand has been selected for various prizes including the Dobell Drawing Prize #21 and #22. She won the Life Abstracted Prize at Cambridge Studio Gallery, Collingwood in 2017.
