In the third solo exhibition of Stéphanie Leblon in Light Cube, the artist shows that her work has become more mature and free. She builds further on her painting technique research of body in motion and how she can express this in a fascinating way through oil paint, pencil or gouache. The distortions of moving bodies and body fragments provide smooth and simultaneously playful images. New in the work of Leblon is the usage of oil pastels in her oil paintings, which adds refinement to her compositions, but also ensures further optical deconstruction and defragmentation of the body image – the topic which has been fascinating the artist for the past couple of years.
Stephanie Leblon (°1970, lives and works in Ghent) studied painting at St-Lucas, Ghent. In 1995 she obtained her Master's Degree in Painting. After that she acquired a postgraduate degree at HISK.
Her work is represented in collections of the Provice of East Flanders, the Province of West Flanders, Océ Netherlands and in private collections at home and abroad.
