Say Hello! stephanielandstudio@gmail.com


I am interested in exploring the ongoing conversation between photography, sculpture and the physical and natural worlds. My work is concerned with not only how bodies move through a space, but too, how space evokes us—the way light hits an archway leading you to enter or that unnamable but universal feeling that washes over you while looking through a window. With my work, I explore the wholistic experience of architecture: how we connect with a space physically, how we move through it, and how it affects us both emotionally and spiritually.

As an artist, I am moved by the idea that all objects and spaces are held with feeling and memory—that what we leave behind in a space becomes part of someone else's felt memory.

My process usually beings with first examining objects through a camera lens. It is from these photographs that my sculptures develop. Through photography and sculpture I explore and express the slight nuances of space—subtle forms that don’t function, but instead provide qualities that just ARE.  Through material and tactility, the three dimensionality of sculpture lets me explore the work as both an image (landscape/environment) and a form (object/symbol).
