May 15, 2015 • USANo Comments

Stephanie KiahBrooklyn-based artist Stephanie Kiah recently completed her first solo exhibition ‘On Earth & Above’ in New York last month. The exhibit featured a collection of mixed media portraits depicting real and imagined women. The curated collection was a celebration of womanhood, femininity and nature as well as creating positive imagery in regards to racial identity. Kia’s subjects are strong yet mysterious forcing the viewer to create their own narrative based on their observations.

Kiah incorporates a variety of materials such as lace, acrylics, magazine cuttings and foil pieces in her work which allows her to be more expressive with her imagination.
