Stephanie Toro explores surfaces with unseen internal structures.
My work examines notions of containment and abstraction. I am fascinated with surfaces and the unseen internal structures that support these surfaces. Through the mixture of vibrant colors, pliable fabrics, and durable materials, I create dynamically linear structures that exist in junction with sculpture, drawing and architecture. I explore the opposing states of ideas from harmony and utopia, to broken, dystopian structures and deteriorating forms. Each sculpture I produce becomes a response to the previous. Through my work I play with the perceived idea of perfection and the reality that nothing last forever, by making pieces that echo decay and violence while also juxtaposing them with pristine sculptures.
