An exhibition of paintings by artist Stephen Staunton


Stephen StauntonĀ is an artist from Galway, Ireland, now living in North London. He sustained a traumatic brain injury in a road traffic accident in 1991, and since 2007 he has attended Headway East London, a charity in Hackney supporting people affected by brain injury, where he began painting. Stephen is deaf and uses very little language or formal signing, instead communicating through gesture, isolated words, vocalisations, and the physical resources of his surroundings.

His paintings display an instinctive flair for colour and composition. They are created with little to no reference to external source material, instead evolving on the paper as Stephen works precisely with a small brush to create them section by section. The results are patchwork dramas of colour.

This exhibition is curated by Steph Hirst.
