Statement

Clairissa Stephens’ artwork investigates relationships between macro and micro elements of the natural world. By combining interests in navigation, mapping, memory, and first-hand experience of extreme environments, her work explores a sense of place and relationship to the landscape. Traversing through remote landscapes is imperative to her process as it presents an opportunity to focus on the infinite intricacies of the land. The materials she uses function as intentional metaphors to develop layers of content and trace the connections between her ideas and aesthetic. Through these materials she visualizes these engagements and reflections of space, reinforcing the experiential relationship to landscape.

Stephens’ holds a BA in Painting and Drawing from Portland State University (2008) and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from the University of Nevada, Reno (2014). Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in California, Nevada, Washington and Oregon. In 2008 she attended a residency at Idyllwild Arts in California, and she attended PLAYA Artist Residency in January 2015. Stephens currently lives and works in Portland, OR.
