“Organics” Series by Stephanie Nargesian Miksis

Ink drawings on paper 

Exhibition: May 2nd – 30th, 2019

This series is titled “Organics” for its fluid and biomorphic forms.  These works celebrate the challenge of repeatedly reacting and responding to what is present on the page. Each mark is placed in relationship to the whole as it is at that moment. The answer to the question “what’s next?” is in the work itself. Without expectations of a specific outcome, the iterative process continues until all the marks have been brought together to create a balanced whole. 

Stephanie Nargesian Miksis engages in painting and drawing, working in a variety of media, a variety of styles, and a variety of locations. Her works record the exploration of the relationship between artist and process. An avid reader and self-directed student of the arts, she delights in the long history of art and enjoys the opportunity to participate in the experience first-hand. She strives to apply form to creativity, to explore the tension between interpretation and mystification, while retaining a playful lightness and a sense of joy.
