Solo exhibition: Galerie Bastian, Berlin
An exhibition of large-scale drawings and prints, based on Stibbon’s field observations of volcanic features in volatile environments; flows of molten rock, eruptions, steam vents and fault zones. The remarkable power and scale of this environment presents a dangerous beauty. In her drawings Stibbon adds volcanic ash, gathered in the field, to her media. By linking the physical and metaphorical dimension to materials, she considers how they have properties of their own and the connection between process and place.

Triggered by recent scientific assessments showing increased instability in the Polar ice sheets, Stibbon’s observations of vast, icy expanses provokes the viewer to consider the beauty and ultimate frailty of...
