Siobhan Stanley

I work in the classical tradition of figurative oil painting. My current body of work explores a re-imagined recording of the lives of black Elizabethans. Within this work I am also exploring themes concerning masculinity and the tenderness of fraternity and brotherhood; gender and conformity and the often unarticulated and subtle boundaries that distinguish the ‘invited’ from the ‘uninvited’. I have trained in classical painting ateliers in both Florence and London. I have exhibited at Leighton House, London and The blackShed Gallery Hastings.
