Stephanie Gamarra’s paintings carry the aesthetic of the Amazon. Primal, subtle, glorious, gorgeous, doused in leafy greens and stark blues. Her work depicts illness vividly; a woman, hands bleeding into her background, staring out of frame, mouth set flat. Stephanie’s paintings are tangible, the texture ripe and thick, composed of masterful strokes that defy precedent. Mostly, Stephanie’s work is alive — and it intends to stay that way.
