    In Beauty Marks we see Stedhead go solo. The show is her first independent London exhibit. Her latest experiments conjure bodies from calligraphy like swipes of a fat, chisel tipped marker. All artworks are drawn under her own steam—which is to say, drawn from her own liveliness, celebrating the movement of bodies through bold strokes of marker. Inspired by motion, music and the beauty in our contours. Her unique style dictating the jutting of limbs, jaws and hips as silhouettes, marks and lines, achieve character born of the artists intuition. These spirits enhanced by brilliant flashes of azure, and gold threading through the scene, demonstrating the energy of the human form. Stedhead is bringing imaginary subjects into recognition, and with that comes an appreciation of the message conveyed. We can take lessons in movement from the profiles of these fierce flowing figures. Read Less
