Currently a Boston based artist, Stephanie grew up in the Midwest, the child of a single working mother who frequently moved from small town to small town throughout the 1970s. A mixed media artist, immediacy and experimentation are essential to Stephanie’s work, and she tries to reduce a given subject to its most basic idea without sentimentality.
Over the past two years I have been working on a long term series called the latchkey project. I start with vintage 1970s dolls. The girls are encased in plaster and painted over in bleeding faded inks. I then take macrophotographic portraits of the plaster girls and with these images create collages on canvas and glass. Some of the the girls are shiny and brittle, others are bleached and torn. All have their own names and personalities.
