Evoking a new perception of space through the translation between mediums, Stephanie Broussard's painting, drawing, and collage practice addresses formal themes of edge, composition, and form. Her compositions are structured using a collage comprised of self sourced imagery, and translates the image into an oil painting. Using the collage as a tool to experiment with composition, she reflects on our perfection of space. Stephanie has received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is now an MFA candidate at Washington State University.
It was a family meeting under the singing pines in 1972. /
The look-alike humans were breathing hard and moving /
up the hill to their meeting spot. What would soon be said /
would soon be lost to my ears for twenty years but never /
leave the hippocampus of my eyes.
In your country, where you are from, I don’t know what / your people say to you, when they recognize you for the // first time, looking like all the rest, with your dirty sack of / laundry and your pencil dangling like a spider on your ear.
