Contemporary Perspectives
April 1 – April 21, 2017
Reception: Thursday, April 6, 2017 6-8 PM

From a distance, the multimedia art of Stephanie E. Graham may appear like simple abstracted still lifes, but a closer inspection of these pieces reveals a complexity of layers, textures, and meanings. Using materials such as beeswax sheets, old books, vellum, ink, and embroidery, Graham laboriously creates pieces she likens to self-portraits, reflections of places and things that fascinate her. In a way, looking at Graham’s work is like peering into a cabinet of curiosities, a collection of objects that may otherwise seem obscure or worthless, but which have obtained a sense of value and perhaps even mystery through their curation by the artist. Common motifs in Graham’s work include bees, maps, flowers, and hexagonal shapes that have acquired their own symbology through Graham's repeated application.

Graham is a native and resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and attended the School of Art at the University of Manitoba. She says that she hopes the time and labor she invests in creating these unique works of art will inspire her viewers to stop, slow down, and appreciate ordinary objects in their own lives.
