Stephanie Rose Guerrero Series Of Paintings "From Inside; The Out" @ New Image Art

"Often times in my work the body and the landscape become so interconnected it is difficult to figure out where bodies start or end, whether they are landscapes or bodies to begin with. Starting with raw canvas, I begin working from the inside out. I employ a technique that stains the images from the backside of the canvas, until it slowly seeps through to the front. Through the staining of the canvas I am confronted with the fluidity of the mark making, and the idea that both the internal and the external are intrinsically connected." "From Inside; The Out" is on view through May 12 at New Image Art 7920 Santa Monica Boulevard Los Angeles. photographs by Lani Trock
