SOON . . . . a must see exhibition

STEPHANIE TETU – ‘Age of Innocence’ 
10 – 21 September

Still life artist Stephanie Têtu is mostly self-taught apart from a short stint at art school in Montreal, which undoubtedly sparked her life-long passion for drawing - especially flowers.  Her sell-out show last year demanded that she produce more of the same and this beautiful floral parade with their lyrical dancing shapes and semi-translucent forms won’t disappoint.  The artist’s intimate observations are enhanced with careful styling and clever use of strong lighting, which she shares with the viewer, enticing them into the heart of each flower where they succumb to the flower’s beauty.  Stephanie has simultaneously created a sense of drama as well as delicacy in her work - a skill that belies her relatively brief career.
