About Stella’s Work:

Interested in images from everyday life, Stella aims to critically explore the habits ofeasy goes, 2017. Oil and acrylic on canvas. 200x170 cm people living in Western capitalist societies, exploring their belief systems and the emotional disconnect to their surroundings.

Intrigued by subjects that are not considered “high art” but are common to the viewers eye, Stella hopes to capture the temporariness, decay and mortality of humans. Her compositions straddle a boundary between the real and the unreal, depicting scenes that never quiet occurred against ideal skies and the greenest lawns.
