Stephen Loughman

Written by Lara on . Posted in Artists

(b. 1964), lives and works in Dublin.

‘Loughman’s energy is enhanced by depopulating his pictures, removing story, emotion, tension, leaving only the very residue of life behind and producing landscape which is all the more compelling for its starkness…In a time so devoted to individuality, the work of Stephen Loughman visually reinforces that strangely separate quality in which we experience our lives as part of some other narrative. We come to life in these landscapes which have been taken from realities elsewhere, versions  of ourselves that have pre-existed us in imaginary form, in another medium, a cross-reference, fictionalised somewhere in the past by culture and commerce.’
