Alluring Abstractions -

Stacee Kalmanovsky’s drawing and painting works are filled with almost raw, emotional power. Vivid images that draw the viewer in, forms and figures depicted via inclusion and exclusion and an essence of sexiness. The use of glitter is another interesting touch as it makes her pieces even more alive and ethereal.

The artist’s statement notes: “Stacee Kalmanovsky's work is rooted in the uncanny, suggestive, and picturesque. Her urge to invent and exaggerate is tempered by a deep dedication to the medium at hand. She believes in the conceptual process itself, from gathering information and sorting through, manipulating, and qualifying the image, to the indisposable skill to achieve the end result. Like in the alchemic process, the raw matter (sulfur = visual information) is transformed, refined, and persuaded into its purest form (gold = art).”
