2013 finalists / Richard Stone

Stone’s work explores the disintegration of traditional modes of representation and seeks to break with its conventions. He approaches this through the manipulation of scale from the intimate to the monumental and explores the compound nature of form and medium. His work resonates with a range of influences from the history of art to popular culture. Stone lives and works in London.
