Stephanie Medford

I am fascinated by the art of the everyday and rely on simple, accessible techniques as well as recycled and found materials. I use linoleum block printing, collage, papier maché sculpture, and weaving to illuminate my understanding of the natural world and our place within it - drawing on images from deep inside the human body or from vast mountain meadows. Inspired by travel, geography, and natural history, my work layers fragments of maps and other ephemera that settle like sheets of sediment and describe the passage of time. I hope to call to mind the mysterious collections in a Victorian cabinet of curiosities and awaken a sense of wonder and imaginative inquiry.
