Pia Stern Abstract Figurative Painter Avaulte Artist

"Many of my works, although primarily abstract, incorporate symbols and imagery. My family background (my parents escaped Nazi Germany) has sensitized me not only to the beauty, but also to the pathos in life. Much of the work is existential in nature, appearing to deal with the tension between light and dark – both metaphorically and formally."

 

I rarely approach my work with a preconceived idea. Like an archaeologist, I approach the canvas as if on a ‘dig’, adding and subtracting, waiting for the meaning of the piece to reveal itself through the mark making process. My work is a disciplined activity akin to meditation or prayer – an activity that enables me to feel more fully engaged with life on a spiritual level.
