About

"I use shape, line and color to express an underlying feeling within each piece, finding expression through the use of geometric forms, variety in surface textures, color combinations, and materials. The underlying inspiration for my work comes from emotional and physical experience. Line relates to drawing and the definition of objects and space. Transitions from one color to the next and the optical vibration that occurs while observing colors juxtaposed against one another is a phenomenon in the eye. I find the most exciting part of the work for me to be the small surprises of unintentional happenstance; edges that bleed a little more than I intended, the texture of paint when applied, or a slip of canvas exposed unexpectedly reveal the natural inaccuracies of the human hand. The evidence of human action and ‘mistake’ exists alongside the desire for precision and accuracy." Being nearsighted from a young age, Audrey Stone is drawn to seeing things up close; her work entails detail in the making and her desire for visual intimacy. How craft and art are distinguished from one another is a fascination for Stone and her work often involves a tension of two parts, like the use of two mediums - thread and paint. For Stone this duality is an expression of existing in two places at once. During her 30 year career, Stone has worked in many mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, mixed media and installation. Her work has been exhibited widely across the US as well as in Prague, London, Bulgaria, Paris and more recently Tokyo. Recent exhibits include a 2015 two-person show at Muriel Guepin Gallery, a solo exhibit of a thread based installation on Governor’s Island in 2014, and group shows at The Arkansas Art Center, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Kentler International Drawing Space, and Jeff Bailey Gallery. Her work is included in many private collections across the United States, in Hong Kong, as well as The Amateras Foundation in Sophia, Bulgaria and the Fidelity Investments Collection. Stone was born and raised in New York City and has many memories of haunting museums, galleries and the studios of established artists while growing up. She studied painting at Pratt Institute and The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and received her BFA from Pratt Institute in 1986. In 1993 She received an MFA from Hunter College. Audrey Stone lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
