Stephen Loughman

Written by Lara on . Posted in Artists

(b. 1964), lives and works in Dublin.

There’s usually something unsettling about Stephen Loughman’s paintings. They have a photographic quality, and often feature settings that have the appearance of being dramatic backdrops, but without the dramatis personae. Their emptiness adds to their eeriness, although they are not always empty. Latterly Loughman has derived his subjects from feature films, presenting us with locations that have a half-familiar, half-strange quality.Familiar because we’ve registered them on a subliminal level, and strange because we’re seeing them out of context, rendered in Loughman’s neutral, offhand style.
