Considering Art Podcast – Steph Goodger, expressionist painter

In this episode, Steph Goodger talks about how childhood memories near the River Medway came to take on a symbolic significance, how social history, architecture and literature influence her works with particular reference to World War I, the Paris Commune and the sinking of the Lusitania. Steph talks about the tension between containment and release in both her subjects and her process and how researching historical archives is often the starting point for a project.

  1. It wasn’t until I took a closer look at your cover photo that I realised the scale of Stephs’ paintings. They are quite large, and give a different feel to her description of each of the other examples here. Great work!
