ARTIST'S BIOGRAPHY 

This exhibition features two bodies of work by self-taught Oak Park artist Stacey Previn.  Stacey's fractured paintings are made of broken eggshells painted with concentrated watercolors.   The intensity of the color contrasts with the black cracks to create a luminous appearance.   The surface is then varnished with gloss to protect and deepen the colors giving the work a rich liquid look.   The delicate cracks in the eggshells speak to the vulnerability within each character Stacey has created.  

Stacey's other work in the exhibit is created using colorful pieces of broken glass on wood arranged in a mosaic pattern.   Here too, the cracks in the figures represent the fragility of life as the works ask the questions, "What is Life?", "What is Faith?", "What is Beauty?", "What is Strength?" and "What is Love?"
