Stefana McClure’s works engage through their minimal striking appearance, seductive use of colour and application of unconventional materials. Always comprising an element of language, the artist’s decisively female gaze bestows on the works a sensibility and presence that captivates audiences both in Europe and her current home, the US.

Bartha Contemporary is pleased to showcase selected works by Stefana McClure to coincide with ‘Women’s History Month' this March. Here McClure explores the notion of language as a weapon, through the subtle changes in meaning that occur in translation and cultural appropriation in her ‘Films on Paper’ series, the physical manifestation as battered stones wrapped in the poems of Emily Dickinson, or the equally poetic engagement with the troubles in her native Northern Ireland that lie at the heart of the artist’s ‘Protest Stones’ and ‘Text into Image’ works.
