Stephanie Roberts Camello
STEPHANIE ROBERTS CAMELLO lives works outside Boston, Ma. in a studio surrounded by a forest, pond and swampland. Having lived and worked in this rich and thriving habitat for most of her life she sources the constant change and transformation found in this natural setting as her subject. For the last few years Robert’s work has been rooted in abstraction with clear references to her environment and the American Landscape. Her recent works on paper speak to us on a more intimate level. There is a feeling of landscape with its traditional sense of ecstasy the divine, but Roberts ‘places’ are driven from an interiority with its own set of conditions. Working mainly in oil with an occasional collage element, these abstractions show a love of paint, composition, color, and texture. They are fresh and colorful and compelling in their mysterious origins.
Stephanie earned a BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 1985. She has shown extensively in the North East winning many awards in juried shows and received an artist residency grant at the Vermont Studio Center. Her paintings and collages are in many public and private collections.
