Stephanie Hirsch

Awaken, Sculpted Butterfly



Continuing her use of beads, sequins, and embroidery to create canvases that echo her personal journeys, Hirsch has delivered her most resolute series to date. Hirsch’s literal and figurative Transformation introduces a new element in her art-making, the shaped canvas.  Transformation exclusively uses the shape of the butterfly and utilizes the butterfly to metaphorically represent a personal transformation.

American artist Stephanie Hirsch creates conceptual objects that explore themes of self-transformation and awareness. Using mediums often associated with women’s work, Hirsch pairs words and images to metaphorically represent notions of strength, courage, humanity, rebirth and renewal. Stitched together with a feminist bent, her works delve deep beneath the shimmering surface to contemplate the meaning of words, images, and reality.
