Stephanie Armbruster

Stephanie Armbruster’s luminous paintings originate in subjective experience. With their atmospheric presence, her compositions seek balance between figure and ground, blurring the lines between landscape and gestural abstraction. Much like their inspiration, each painting is a densely-layered accumulation of structure and symbolism.


Working primarily in encaustic, Armbruster's paintings are composed of dozens of layers of translucent wax, fused with a flame torch, and smoothed by hand. Her work has been exhibited nationally at institutions including the Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art, Carnegie Museum of Art, Los Angeles Printmaking Society, James Gallery and others. She received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon in 2006.
