I place a high priority on minimal landfill waste. During the 2020 quarantine, I started making aesthetic use of surplus supplies in my studio and home. I continue that practice on occasion in order to productively repurpose and minimize my waste.
Abandoned canvases, used dropcloths, fabric remnants, tattered linens, scrap papers, leftover paint – they all find a place in many of my paintings. Of particular note here, this is a collage artwork embellished onto a salvaged dropcloth from my studio. I put the dropcloth thru two heavy duty wash cycles and then build onto the reverse side of the cloth where the paint stains are more faded. I limit my composition and color selections based on the pigments already randomly set into the dropcloth.

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.
