Stacey Warnix

Stacey Warnix

Hometown: Austin

Based in: Central Texas

Stacey Warnix is an American lyrical abstraction painter who uses gestural methods to layer mixed media pigments and collage over raw textile grounds. She paints to escape a world of precision, finding respite in abstract forms, textures, and tones.

Interspersing pigment and collage layers of varying translucency over rough, nubby textile grounds, Warnix’s paintings feature gritty, tactile details and small imperfections that melt into subtle tonal variations and ethereal obscurity when viewed from a distance.

Warnix employs gestural abstraction methods to intentionally silence her perfectionist, detail-oriented tendencies. She approaches every artwork with flexibility and fluidity, starting with little more than a loosely defined concept or color scheme and relying on intuition and happenstance to shape the ultimate composition.

Stacey Warnix In The Studio

""I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me - and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would more like to paint what it leaves with me." -- Joan Mitchell"

More About Stacey Warnix

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Immense, expansive horizons, where earth touches sky in bending undulations

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

As a gestural painter, I tend to start with little more than a color theme in mind. Since I almost always work on raw textile, there is an immediate permanence to the first marks and color blocks. I work up in smaller layers, sometimes embedding papers or fabric remnants into still-wet paints. The juxtaposition of thin and thick, translucent and opaque, create contrasts that I embrace or obscure as I work my way across the face, accumulating more layers. My thoughts, like the gritty nubs and imperfections in the raw textile, melt into subtle tonality and ethereal obscurity.

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

It was a very specific piece of advice about a painting I was working on, an observation shared by a gallery curator whom I respected immensely. He pointed to a blurred and stippled area of my painting with delicate shading that he especially enjoyed and he told me to make more of that magic. Ever since, anytime I do, it always works.
