In this episode Rosa Torr talks with Antonia Showering about the universal potential of telling personal stories through art, artistic process, special Swiss mountains and good music.
Antonia Showering is known for her richly layered depictions of family members in landscape settings, deployed in warm, velvety washes of red, orange and green. Antonia is interested in how paint has the ability to manipulate or alter past experiences. Her works capture the ephemeral nature of memory, using canvas or paper as a portal into these private moments. Similar to the act of story-telling some parts are exaggerated, forgotten and other parts totally invented. Antonia has been featured in dozens of group exhibitions at the Stephen Friedman Gallery, South London Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Timothy Taylor and more. She continues to make waves as one of Britain’s most exciting artists and last year Antonia’s first solo show at White Cube GALLERY was a major success.
