Stephen Doherty is a British artist based in London. His work is led by reflecting on his environments; the people around him, their relationships and shared experience. Other common themes in his work are nature, community and ritual. 

 

Doherty’s first solo show, ‘Gratitude Blooms’ was exhibited at SHOWstudio earlier this year. It featured paintings of decaying flowers and petal pieces which were accompanied by studies of the human figure. The show was centred around the themes of ritual celebration and performative acts of gratitude.

 

Stephen is currently artist in residence at the Sarabande foundation and is represented by SHOWstudio.
