“I visually tend to notice floral patterns in landscape horizons (whether real or painted) so I have allowed this phenomenon to find its way on to my canvases. Today, I continue to blend landscape and floral influences together in what, for me, often feels like a surreal dreamscape, loosely tied to some vague, romanticized version of a place I once visited” -Stacey Warnix
Stacey Warnix is an American lyrical abstraction painter who uses gestural methods to layer mixed media pigments and collage over raw textile grounds.
Introduced to painting as a young preschooler by an artist grandmother, Stacey created paintings and collages throughout her childhood, winning frequent awards, but she ultimately pursued a professional career in law and finance. In 2014, she left that career to pursue a home restoration side business on a full-time basis and started painting large scale abstract artworks for use in projects. Within weeks of posting a few paintings to social media, Stacey was invited to sell artworks in an upscale home décor boutique, and from that unplanned, very unintentional start, her art practice quickly grew.
Today, Stacey paints mainly large-scale, non-representational paintings using a wide range of layered media over raw textiles. Her paintings explore the infinite nuances of color and shading, incorporating collage to subtly shift the reflectivity, luminosity, and visual perception of the subject color fields. A self-proclaimed recovering perfectionist, Stacey employs gestural abstraction methods to intentionally silence her detail-oriented tendencies, finding respite in abstract forms, textures, and tones.
