Stephanie Pierce showed a body of work, Wake, at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects just last summer.  Now Pierce is readying to show a new body of work at Alpha Gallery in Boston with the title Radiant Welter.  The exhibit opens April 4th.  Here is a choice bit from the press release: ” With meticulously plotted out applications of paint pushing and pulling between figuration and abstraction, Pierce’s work conveys the sensation that materiality becomes elusive the minute we try to pin it down.”  

We asked Pierce a few questions about her work, and how she works lately.  She was kind enough to reply.  

After you read the Q&A below, you know you  might want to see more  of Stephanie Pierce’s work at her website.  You might want to read more about her at the website for the Joan Mitchell Foundation (Pierce received a J.M. Foundation grant last year). or read the longer interview with Pierce that Sam King posted in 2009. 

What is the hard part of painting for you?
All of it: getting started, figuring out what to start with, figuring out what is interesting there to be uncovered, figuring out what it’s going to be about, pushing past the obvious things, breaking routines, finding something new, embracing the chaos. Finding something transcendent in observing something so mundane over a long period of time, having patience and faith that something good will eventually happen through the process. Making it matter.
