The initmacy of Stacey's subject matter is intertwined with the scale of her work. Small vignettes of quiet moments captured with a robust yet gentle brushstroke, her sense of place and home expressed with tenderness, light and shadow observed, portraying the ephemera that sits unnoticed, still and silent in a busy home.
" Burnt sienna underpainting glows through transparent layers of muted colour, a nod to my 70's childhood, memories of gum leaves and earthenware, carefully curated. I think more and more I am comfortable with leaving things a little raw but hopefully resolved. It's difficult to know when to put the brush down but I think sometimes the less said the better".
