Video: Stephanie Peek - A Portrait of a Shipyard Artist

This episode highlights Stephanie Peek, whose florally-inspired oil paintings speak metaphorically of the lush but fragile beauty of the world.

Stephanie’s work has been exhibited at the Contemporary Museum of Art in Prato, Italy; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of California, San Diego; the Museo Italo-Americano, San Francisco; and the Oakland Museum of California. Her artists’ books are in the collections of the Library of Congress of the United States, the New York Public Library, Harvard and Stanford Universities and the University of California at Berkeley, as well as many private collectors nationally and internationally.

“The content of my work is really about refuge. Refuge, as a place like Hunters Point Shipyard, to escape from all the worldly, mundane distractions and demands we have put upon us or that we put upon ourselves. I find that painting can be a site of meditation, suspending time, making time irrelevant, and can put me in touch with that which does not decay.” – Stephanie Peek (Building 101, Studio 2501)
