Stevie Love lives and works in the foothills overlooking the Mojave Desert one hour north of Los Angeles in her handmade adobe house, and her work expresses her deep connection to the space and material energy of the desert.
Acknowledging her addiction to acrylic paint for its ability to form three dimensional forms, Love has developed a diverse body of work that transcends the boundaries between painting and sculpture. The paintings and paint objects glorify and give voice to the paint itself. Peter Frank described her work as “the moment where pictorial language and mental imagination, conventional thought and erratic vision, give way to one another”.
Love's solo exhibitions include the inaugural opening of the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, California, the Riverside Art Museum, RVF Fullerton Museum at California State University San Bernardino, and Scuola Internazionale di Venezia, Italy.
Her work is in the permanent collections of the Riverside Art Museum and the Lancaster Museum of Art and History.
Love’s bibliography includes a monograph, and features in Artscene Gallery Guide, the International Survey of Contemporary Art, Long Beach Press-Telegram, Riverside Press Enterprise, OC Weekly, Art.Blogging.LA, nyartsmagazine.com, Berliner Kunst, International Edition, and zerodegreesart.com.
