Rea Stavropoulos's work combines delicacy and dynamism. It links the female figure with the changing forms and colours of the natural environment through a variety of media including video, artists’ books and collaborative performance. She has worked over the last nine years on an “outdoor canvas”, creating a garden on a Tuscan hillside.

“I have lived and travelled between two cultures, Greek and English, since I was a baby and there is now a third, since I live in Italy for much of the year. Travelling from an early age across Europe at a time when a train journey was a real adventure, I experienced the exhilaration of shifting perspectives, new angles of vision and an intense appreciation of the light, mood, colour and atmosphere that distinguish each country. That sense of excitement and discovery is what motivates my work: exploring the fragile beauty and grandeur of the world and my place within it.”
