“I find the inspiration for my paintings on road trips through everyday, American landscape. My idealized portraits of signs are an ode to the beauty I find in the three-dimensional, human-made world. I see the signs I chose to depict as place-markers and advertisements, which serve reminders of a community’s culture and history, the evolution of commerce, design and manufacturing trends, impermanence, and obsolescence."

ARTIST STATEMENT
Stephanie Schechter Arden Gallery

"Though my work starts with photography, my paintings are highly edited from their original reference photos. I create compositions that articulate what I find compelling about my subjects. I remove details such as the rust, dents, and peeling paint that occur in real life, and focus my work on color, three dimensional form, and shadows. Elements are shifted in order to direct the eye. My meticulous, smooth, hard-edge painting technique combines bold areas of solid color with delicately blended transitions. The resulting body of work is minimalistic and graphic, yet maintains the perception of hyperrealism. Each painting embodies my love for my subjects and the poignancy I see in these often-overlooked treasures."
