Stephanie Sampson


I recently recieved an email from Stephanie, a Greek Canadian artist who sent me these striking pictures from her The Faces of Nemesis; Investigative Painting on the Streets of Athens (2012). The work shows people affected
by the recession and are watercolour portraits done on location on the streets of
Athens, Greece 2012. 

Stephanie says "I will be doing similar portraits on London streets in Feb 2013..
(needless to say, the risk of making cliche images of the poor is a danger, but
I try to bypass that with economy of means and unsentimentality)".
After leaving Corsham Stephanie went on to do a MFA in Canada.
