The series of watercolors and small oil paintings, entitled Lusitania, was inspired by old and enigmatic photos of the first class cabins of the RMS Lusitania, of sad memory.

The liner was sunk by German torpedoes 11 nautical miles off Ireland in 1915. It sank in 18 minutes. Having studied the history of the RMS Lusitania, I found it fascinating to imagine the limits of these lost spaces.

The photos show a labyrinth of connected interiors. The mise en abîme of these identical spaces that are repeated through the string of doors and multiplied in the mirrors altering and fragmenting the volumes, give me the impression of being trapped there. So, all that's left for me to do is to sink, a little anxiously, into a world without limits." Steph Goodger

Confirmed artist
  • 18 works

Steph Goodger lives and works between Bordeaux and Great Britain. In 2020, she won a prize in the prestigious British competition, John Moores Painting Prize.

The artist enjoys collaborating and organizing group exhibitions, both in France and the UK. She exhibits her large format paintings internationally. In her work, she draws as much on photographic archives as on social history, architecture and literature. The recurring theme is conflict; conflict zones, theaters of war, the human experience of conflict and its material, social and individual consequences, as well as the trauma caused to the Earth itself.

Steph Goodger works in series. By conducting extensive research in photographic archives, she often creates collages and photomontages. Watercolor studies and small oil paintings are the preparatory steps for the larger paintings.

"My paintings were about something I would never really know, places I could never go. But they also conjured up a new space, a shifting world at the edge of the present and the past." Steph Goodger
