Nature and intuition inform my work, which investigates transitory states and emotional fluidity. Through themes of cycles, repetition, and intertwinement my pieces examine our ideas about what is ephemeral and what is permanent. By drawing on memory as nonlinear, I aim to create new modes of storytelling by using fractions of dreams and memories to give new meanings to spaces through my artwork.
Stella Hendricks is a multimedia artist based in Baltimore, Maryland. Her primary mediums include sculpture and photography and she graduated from Towson University in 2020 with a B.S. in Art+Design. Her work is inspired by liminal spaces of perception and nature. She enjoys art for its healing properties including its ability to question norms, connect with deeper parts of the psyche, and inspire a sense of freedom.
Stella has participated as a research assistant on curatorial projects including those at the National Portrait Gallery in D.C. and the Baltimore Museum of Art, where she was a Souls Grown Deep Intern. She aims to help develop community art spaces for women and non-binary people of color that center around healing and self-expression.
