Stéphanie MAX

Graduate of A DNAP (Diplome National d’Art Plastique), a DNSEP (Diplôme National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique) and a Master of Science in Ethnology.

Inspired by nature, the human body, the environment and beliefs, I mix techniques in creating my work ; frequently working with printings, drawings, paintings and collages on paper. I create always driven by my curiosity, the inspiration of my surroundings, what happens in the present time. I am still open to discoveries, to what emerges. The process is the most important part for me.

My first artist « shock » was to discover Miró, Dalí, Picasso, Sonia Delaunay, Dubuffet and more at the National Museum of the Queen Sofía and Goya at the Prado Museum in Madrid. It was during a school trip, I was a young teenager, I keep still a vivid memory of the paintings and their confrontation, it was the starting point of my deep relationship with the arts.

I change countries and places often, I lived and worked in France, Morocco, Mali and Italy. At the moment, I am living in Yeovil, Somerset, in the South West of England. I work from a studio in the Yeovil Art Space. Previously, I worked in « L’atelier papier » alongside Pascale Loget.

I always engaged locally with artists and the community around me. I recently have been commissioned for a Research and Development Community project with 2 other artists. Funded by Arts Council England Lottery Funding, supported by Yeovil Art Space.

I’m a member of Yeovil Creatives and Somerset Printmakers.
