Over the last 5 years Stoicheff’s practice has expanded from the “stubbornly nonobjective” to include imagery, text, a myriad of surface treatments, and small cast objects. Her work speaks in an ever-expanding vocabulary that collapses the chasm between process, subject and content. From traditional oil painting to tie-dye, her experimental studio practice delves into collective cultural mythologies and the mythos of painting itself. The results are bountiful with visual texture and references—traditions of American post-war abstraction congress with image and object, pushing the practical and ontological boundaries of painting.
Stoicheff has exhibited in Europe and the United States, primarily in New York City, since 2005. She holds an MFA from Bard College, Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY (2005). She was the recipient of Robert Motherwell’s prestigious Dedalus Foundation Master of Fine Arts Fellowship in Painting, as well as The Elaine DeKooning Painting Award, and was recently the featured cover artist for Little Star Weekly literary journal and the New England Review.
