Stefanie Denz Studio
I am interested in how inner processes come to light through relationships. My paintings are narrative featuring family members, friends, media and film images, dreams and architecture. I look for a feeling that is elusive yet familiar, and lies in the construction of the space. The presence of things meeting with the presence of other things including the space, inspires me. I sometimes include found material for its otherness, relate-abilty and as a reminder of the tactile world which we belong to.
