STACIE HERNANDEZ

Mélange of Milieu
February 14 – March 7, 2017
Reception: Thursday, February 16, 2017 6-8 PM

Over the course of a successful career, Stacie Hernandez has undergone several shifts in artistic style, including one between abstract to figurative. Both her more naturalistic paintings and her lyrical abstractions demonstrate in their own ways that Hernandez excels at employing contrasting forms of light and dark, space and density, and color combinations in a way that viewers intuitively understand as experiential. A thoughtful and deliberate artist, Hernandez builds each painting slowly and carefully, focusing on creating expressive and elegant lines, drawing directly onto her canvas with thin layers of paint. Through a laborious process of addition and subtraction, Hernandez works until she discovers something in each piece that surprises her. Her paintings are highly personal, reflecting Hernandez’s emotional state and landscape at a fixed point in time. She describes her approach to painting as combining physical action with meticulous and precise visual observation.

Hernandez holds a MFA from Pratt Institute and is currently the director and artist in residence of Palencia Fine Arts Academy. She lives in St. Augustine, Florida.
