INQUIRE
ABOUT THIS ART:

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

"This is a piece I did of the vacant Brewster-Douglass Housing Projects in Detroit. It's actually a compilation of two different trips, the first time I photographed, the buildings had not been painted and the second time I went they had and I loved things about both trips so I combined them. The original sold at a show with Thinkspace Gallery in Philadelphia at Gallery 309.

The idea came about as most of my pieces do. I wander around the city, this one happens do be in Detroit where I lived for some time, and I find places I love and take photos of things I find beautiful or interesting. It's sort of a wandering, intuitive way of finding inspiration. Then I take the images back to my studio and work with whatever inspire me at that time or I think would work well for certain shows." - Stephanie Buer


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Stephanie Buer, now based in Portland, has spent over a decade observing the urban landscapes in Detroit, MI. She has an intimate appreciation of urban desolation and a love for the once prosperous buildings that have been abandoned to time and the elements. Her works in both oil and charcoal capture with photo-like detail the layers of gritty history that accumulate as these places succumb to the manipulation of vandals, artists, and the steady persistence of nature.

ABOUT Stephanie Buer:
Stephanie Buer, now based in Portland, has spent over a decade observing the urban landscapes in Detroit, MI. She has an intimate appreciation of urban desolation and a love for the once prosperous buildings that have been abandoned to time and the elements. Her works in both oil and charcoal capture with photo-like detail the layers of gritty history that accumulate as these places succumb to the manipulation of vandals, artists, and the steady persistence of nature. In the juxtaposition between decay and growth, Stephanie finds a place that echoes the peace she finds in nature, with its endless cycles of change.

Part of the power in Stephanie's work comes from the absence of human figures in a place clearly marked by them. Rather than allowing distant observation as narrative, she draws viewers in to witness the space that people have left behind, compelling them to personally experience these modern relics that have been condemned by society. The simultaneously idyllic, yet derelict scenes challenge viewers to question their notions of beauty, while the detailed texture and depth that is characteristic of her work invites them to explore these places personally, as she does while taking the photographs from which she works.
