Sticks and Stones is an arresting work, both with its bright, bold hues and with the perspective of Stef’s process. A whole picture is buried beneath the pixels that leap from the canvas; tiny parts of the past peek through the hundreds of layers of thick brushstrokes. The painting is a battlefield – a back and forth between giving up control and winning it back.
About the Artist
Stefanie Thiele sees her paintings as a difficult-to-describe mix of euphoric "what if's" and melancholic “could-have-been's” translated into busy, colorful compositions that are seemingly unable to find a clear focus.
Alice Riot Supports ArtTable
A portion of proceeds from the upcycled face masks, after the artist’s commission, will be donated to ArtTable, the foremost professional organization dedicated to advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts.
