these pieces are an homage to friendship and all the gifts granted to us through the power of female alliances. i was reminded of this power with the recent loss of my father when i found myself buoyed by the love and support shown to me from the beautiful women i’ve chosen to surround myself with. friendship is a force that can help lift us up, lend courage and strength and help to heal.
jennifer stefanek received her BFA from the university of michigan and is an artist and graphic designer living and creating in her home studio in the suburbs of detroit and her focus is currently vibrant floral paintings using oil paint mixed with cold wax medium. toeing the line between real and imagined flowers painted in an abstracted representational way, she becomes a floral arranger on paper with her lively arrangements which focus on color, composition and texture. she paints using palette knives, silicone wedges and silicone paint pushers—no brushes—building up layers and scraping away—continually adding and subtracting every step of the way in her multi-layered process. through this process she also incorporates her love of drawing and adds a strong linear element to the paintings by drawing in to the layers with the tip of her palette knife creating pieces that are lush, vibrant and textural.
