“During 2013, I was commissioned by the Bowery Gallery in Leeds to produce a new body of work to be exhibited as a solo exhibition in the gallery. 

Further to the ‘Fragments’ and ‘Life Lines’ series, I began to work on a larger scale and consider how the pieces in space. 

I produced 10 new pieces which formed the basis of a drawing installation exhibited in the gallery during 2014.

The installation offered a different way for an audience to engage with my work and I documented viewers responses throughout the exhibition.”

“Interesting finding the figures in each piece.” R. Joad.

“Absolutely beautiful, so clever, like a cryptic crossword for the eyes!” L Reed.

“Interesting both in close up and when standing back. I love the stitched lines and apparent randomness of the work which offers the viewer form and meaning.” K. Bate.

During 2015 the Traces series also formed part of Stewart’s Bodyworks solo exhibition at Bankley Studios & Gallery in Manchester. In addition, Stewart exhibited the Traces series  as a solo exhibition at Hand & Lock in London during 2016.
