Roberta Stoddart | Jamaïque

Née en 1963 en Jamaïque,
Vit et travaille à Trinidad & Tobago.

Roberta Stoddart is an artist whose paintings have been described as brave, dense, bold, thoroughly executed, and deeply felt. They are not pleasant, pretty paintings. Intense and disturbing, they stimulate questions about our collective prejudices, our psychological spaces, and our notions of belonging. Stoddart has published two books, Seamless Spaces (2000) and The Storyteller (2007). She has produced five solo exhibitions, and has participated in important local, regional, and international group shows. She is the recipient of a Peoples’ Choice prize in France and has exhibited at the Werner Gallery, Berlin, Germany. Her paintings are published in numerous magazines, art catalogues and journals.

“I wish my work to give of itself in a pure and simple way. I am a storyteller who fleshes out what is most important to my heart. My paintings are often symbolic and allegorical, attempting to explore lived experiences of both an autobiographical and social nature. There is a response in my work to the Gothic thread running through our Caribbean histories. Our landscapes are haunted by stories told and untold, and by stories denied.

My painting concerns itself with the potential rewards of metamorphosis. Negative notions regarding difference create conflict and promote isolation and loneliness. The feeling of not belonging is civilisation’s greatest contemporary illness. Our planet grows and evolves through its profound diversity, yet we collectively fail to value each and every living creature. Unable to recognize and fulfil our true potential, our sense of usefulness to our social, cultural, psychological and spiritual development is undermined.

In my work I intimately connect my personal world with aspects of our human family’s psychological and spiritual condition. Situated between tradition and rupture, my art speaks to a paradox both individual and universal: the soul’s longing for transformation and our need for stability and continuity”.

Roberta Stoddart est diplômée du Queensland College of Art de Brisbane, Australie (1985) et du Sydney College of the Arts de Sydney, Australie (1987).

En 1999, elle est lauréate du 1e prix public du 30e Festival International de Peinture de Cagnes-sur-Mer, France.
