Mo Stewart is a South African-born artist based in Otautahi (Christchurch). Her practice is grounded in image and physical action. Her works make visible her physical and psychological presence dissolving the binary between mind and body.
Mo describes her work as immediate and fragile, as spaces of discovery and change and is interested in pushing the boundaries of materials and how they react to each other as well as the surface that she works on.
The materials she uses and the technique when applying the gestural mark is suggestive of the unconscious approach to drawing, while the deliberate drawing highlights the convergence between these different techniques.
Mo will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
