“I am interested in engaging with the ongoing dialogue between constructed space and structures, and the organic evolutions of form, reuse and re-purposing of existing environments.”

Cortney Stephenson’s work is focused on the natural and entropic relationships and first person experiences of spaces, while looking at constructed and organic developments of the urban environment. Drawing from the separation that exists between community development and urban renewal, between private and public spaces I create abstracted representations of buildings, cityscapes and methods of mass transit. Her work has been inspired by the imagery of Toronto and TTC platforms, highways, geographical charts and mapping systems, creating spatial perceptions of the evolving urban environment. Reflective of a dense and concentrated urban landscape, spreading outward into open spaces she translates the experience of atmospheric conditions through the exploration of situation, space and form, making references to landmass, drawn line and color.
