About Stephanie

Baltimore City - Station North A&E District

Stephanie Garon graduated with dual science degrees from Cornell University, then attended Maryland Institute College of Art. Her artwork has been exhibited internationally in London, Colombia, and South Korea, as well as across the United States.  Stephanie's artworks use chemistry to manipulate organic materials that project narratives of nature and feminism. Alchemy meets allegory in dynamic, natural forms that change over time. The decomposition captures paradoxes: formalism and fragility,... more

Nature/Nurture

Nature/Nurture juxtaposes organic materials against steel as a metaphor for human limitations in the face of nature. Through abstract expressionism, narratives examine the weaknesses and strengths within ourselves and the environmental world around us. Each piece addresses interdependency through its decomposition and changes through time.

Coarse/Discourse

Coarse/Discourse explores the tenuous, dynamic relationship between nature and the human world, focusing on the fragility of both. The path of nature and the impact of humankind are intertwined and, often, not smooth. This is interpreted through tactile coarseness of the sculpture, as well as the intricate branching details of the inkwork.

North/South

After a sabbatical summer split between New York's Hudson River Valley and Huntsville, Alabama, I was compelled to create a body of work that explored the physical, socioeconomic, and historical references of the terrain. The fierce crimson of the Alabama earth contrasted with the cobalt blue tones of New York stone seemed like a reverential exploration and a metaphor for differences.
