Stephanie Pierce

Stephanie Pierce approaches painting with perceptual problems foremost in mind. In order to explore her visual questions, she has arrived at a form which defies traditional representational conventions while still being entirely about seeing, and the experience of perceptual reality. Although her work is deeply indebted to her teacher, Ann Gale, there's a lot of unique work to see on her website. Neil Plotkin also interviewed her for the  Painting Perceptions blog here. A quick quote from the interview: "I feel like if anything, the paintings are like these confessions of all my inability, or some kind of record of how I struggle to understand something or come to process this thing I see."
