Stefania Medeiros is an American artist born in Providence, Rhode Island, whose unsettling and surrealistic sculptures and paintings beckon us into deeply textured and haunted worlds. Medeiros’ background working in the film industry lends attention to detail that further accentuates her original creations.
Medeiros takes inspiration from the forms and textures in the world around her, transmuting them into dark, yet ethereal concepts that speak to her interest in playing with reality and exploring the subconscious mind. As much of her work is inspired by dreams, Medeiros allows the viewer to step outside of our known world while keeping one foot in reality.
After taking a step back from the film industry in recent years to focus on her own work, Medeiros has also taken a bold step to close the doors to her physical retail store in 2022 to pursue working as an independent artist.
In a world where light springs eternal it takes an entity that is
steadfast to remain in the dark.
Within the void the mind soars , the spirit shimmers and purpose remains.
An artist like Stefania Medeiros appears to be in the forefront, where the whole world is able to see. Yet she resides in her own realm, humble and exploring her creative process in her own manners. not influenced and certainly not rushed.
She stands by her work both as a guardian of it's original intent and an advocate for genuine artistry.
Her work is of monsters, life and sound, for when you view her work you have no other course but hear the life that is sculpted into her visions.
I am in awe of her conviction and an admirer of the universe she continually creates.
It is an honor for me to have her work exhibited at 86 Orchard.
