Recent works inspired by the environment and landscape throughout Victoria. Stewart’s work explores the sensuous experience of landscape and the relationship between humans and their environment. In her paintings the figurative and abstract coalesce in layered images, which are rich with gestural mark-making and other visual traces of her expressionistic reworking of the scene.
