Stephanie Costello



Stephanie Costello creates art like obstacle courses. She draws an improvised architecture, and creates movement negotiating this structure: up-stairs, down-slides, across wires, and through fields of complicated imagery--a type of choreography with an ascending and tumbling rhythm. She begins her work by sourcing imagery that contains the energy of a particular place or moment, and then creates a loose architecture around which she wraps the imagery. She is especially interested in imagery related to cities, architecture, fashion, objects of desire, and games: playing cards, olympic flags, basketball courts, etc. Pulling these disparate sources into a drawing becomes its own game with shifting movement, opposing influences, and flexible rules. Stephanie received a BA in Studio Art from DePaul University, a post-baccalaureate degree in Painting from Brandeis University, and an MFA from Massachusetts College of Art. She has exhibited her work in galleries and museums in the U.S and abroad, including The Bronx Museum and Lincoln Center Plaza in New York, the Riverside Art Museum in California, and La Pan gallery in Barcelona and Shang-hai. In addition to her studio practice, she creates commissioned drawings and murals for private clients, and works with Project Backboard, a globally recognized non-profit that creates murals on basketball courts.
