“I am an Eco-Artist and I use recycled materials to create artwork which is cheerful, scary, hopeful and amusing. I also challenge my viewers to think of recycling as a new vocabulary of possibilities.”
Flock like birds on a wire
Inspired by the pigeons at Grand Central Market looking for scraps
Per Stuart, One idea leads to another
“I use a saturated and abstract visual language to reference recurring signs in nature, embodying the interconnected design of all things. My artistic practice is uninhibited, playful, and intuitive. In my paintings and multi-media work I employ a universal language of bright colors and patterns. Using a variety of materials, I explore the intersection of painting, textiles, and installation. I strive to express what I find to be spirited, kaleidoscopic, and celebratory to transport the viewer from a two-dimensional plane into an elevated visual experience that is joyous, hopeful, and life-affirming.”
