Since the 1960s, Stuart has created a multifaceted body of work including large-scale earth works, complex multi-media installations, earth drawings, encaustic paintings, sculptural objects, drawings and prints. The photographic image has been an ancillary part of her work in the past; it is currently the primary medium, as seen in this body of work, in which the artist documented her travel through timespace, weather and light, along the passage of a full English train line.
