STEPHANIE NELSON IS A MULTI-MEDIA ARTIST WHOSE PHOTO AND VIDEO WORKS ORBIT AROUND THE FEMME BODY, AIMING TO DECONSTRUCT ITS BEAUTY AND SEXUAL STANDARDS/STIGMAS. HER USE OF COLORFUL IMAGERY WITHIN THE COMPOSITIONS ALLOWS THE VIEWERS’ EYES TO HAVE MUCH TO FEAST ON. IN HER ILLUSTRATIVE WORK, THE SAME COLOR SCHEME IS CARRIED OVER, YET HER SMALL GRAPHICS DELVE INTO THE DEMONIC/OCCULTIST, CASTING CONVENTIONALLY DARK IMAGERY IN A “SUGAR-COATED’’ FASHION. HER WORK ENGAGES THE VIEWER WITH ITS WHIMSICAL AND EXCITING COLORS WHILE DEPICTING JUXTAPOSITIONS TO THE INFERNAL. A STRONG SENSE OF HUMOR AND PERSONALITY MANIFEST IN HER WORKS AS SHE CONTINUES TO BUILD FANTASTICAL WORLDS IN WHICH HER CURATED CHARACTERS EXIST.
