Say Hello! mstephanieland@gmail.com

 

My practice is built out of a traditional photography background and developed through a learned printmaking process. It is an ongoing relationship between photography, sculpture and artist books; the root always being in photography. Through printmaking I found that I can allow the final piece to change throughout the process, that it's not a fixed outcome. Where as in photography I printed the image exactly how I shot it. I now allow and welcome the piece to change through the process from beginning to end. 

My sculptures are abstract interpretations of objects that I have photographed. I consider these three dimensional pieces to be ‘images’. My work is drawn from observations of architecture and spaces. I am interested in the push and pull associated with duality ‐ weakness vs strength, sensuality vs restraint, public expectations vs private internalizations. As an observer my inspiration is derived from how we move through these spaces and structures.

I am building my own environment.
