Stamp reflects our current times, while searching through past and present histories in which frame and universalises his interior life of memories, emotions and questions.
Born in 1985, Shaun Stamp is a multimedia Artist whose work explores Life and Self as a confessional subject matter. The mediums Stamps use are photography, sculpture, painting, installation and other media. Stamp reflects our current times, while searching through past and present histories in which frame and universalises his interior life of memories, emotions and questions. Seeking to unveil the complex spectrum of existence Stamp divulges these ideas into objects. Stamp’s other works like Vascullum Project explore the medium of crude and engineering oils that seep to explore a relationship of the industrialised world and his relationship to his mechanic Father. His Photographic work ranges from the study of philosophising everyday life, to the banal and intimate portraiture of others and himself. Stamp’s works seek to unfold such themes of exploring the Self through psychological topics and themes of Mores, Taboos, Family, Cultures and Human Existence in which he draws from his mixed family heritage and history. Using philosophy, science and place to pinpoint and portray a visual diary, Stamps objects create a disjointed time-line, digging to uncover a conversation between the Self, Viewer and the space in-between that leaves the rest to unfold. Ultimately his works reflects life and in how we experience it, existing in todays world. Stamp has been Artist in Resident in South Korea, Netherlands, France, Finland and Armenia; and has exhibited in group shows nationally and internationally, with solo exhibitions in the UK. In 2018, Stamp co-curated with Chiara Williams Contemporary, international group-show At The Violet Hour; based on TS Eliots The Waste Land poem as a site specific show held at the dilapidated Nayland Rock Hotel, Margate (where Eliot part wrote the poem).
