Artist Statement

Pictured: Strange Lands and Stranger Dreams, 2017, 30" x 22", oil and cold wax on paper

Artist Statement
Stephanie Armbruster’s luminous paintings originate in subjective experience. With their atmospheric presence, her compositions seek balance between figure and ground, blurring the lines between landscape and gestural abstraction. Much like their inspiration, each painting is a densely-layered accumulation of structure and symbolism.

Bio
Stephanie Armbruster was born in Cleveland, OH, in 1983. She moved to Pittsburgh in 2001 to attend Carnegie Mellon University, where she received a BFA in 2006. Working primarily in encaustic, Armbruster's paintings are composed of dozens of layers of translucent wax, fused with a flame torch, and smoothed by hand. Her work has been exhibited nationally at institutions including Cornell University, the Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art, Carnegie Museum of Art, Los Angeles Printmaking Society, James Gallery, R&F Encaustic Paints, and others.
