Stephen Whatcott

United Kingdom


Stephen Whatcott is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Worcestershire, UK. Stephen often produces minimalist, abstract expressionist paintings. With roots based in drawing, his work tends to utilise line and form. These largely monochrome abstract paintings explore solidity, texture, and composition, often executed in a seemingly aggressive, or at least expressive, manner. The bold and striking structural forms present in his minimalist, abstract expressionist paintings concentrate on qualities such as truth, order, simplicity, and harmony. The emotional impact of the image is always the primary focus of these paintings. Ranging from great, colossal walls of paint to more free-flowing expressive forms, they are built up in many textured layers and composed largely intuitively. The paintings are physical, both in technique and presence, but ultimately attempt to communicate on an emotional level.
