Exhibition Overview
For more than five decades, Signe Stuart has explored the interconnectedness of materiality and immateriality through her art. Whether she is creating abstract paintings, works on paper, mixed media constructions, or installations, Stuart’s work originates from the patterns and textures of this world, but her subjects are intangible in nature, dealing with essences rather than the appearance of things. Her oeuvre presents the viewer with a paradox, expressing immaterial nature through tactile materials.

Signe Stuart: Fifteen is an exploration of this artist’s ongoing creative investigations. Each of the fifteen works in this exhibition was completed in a different year, providing the viewer with a sampling of Stuart’s art through time. It is not a comprehensive retrospective, but a visual meditation on the changes and continuities that have shaped her artistic inquiries.
