East Village Fire Escape – Falling Red Heels – Clown Katchina by Stacy Pearl

Stacy Pearl was born in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn and attended Rhode Island School of Design, The Art Students League of New York, and Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University.  Her exhibition at the Cunneen-Hackett Art Center, the Meaningless Paintings series, was completed over the past few years, mostly during the COVID-19 pandemic, and consists of representational imagery. “These works incorporate imagery from ‘high’ art to popular culture, from sports to science, to food, to tools and machines, to idyllic scenery — it’s all fair game,” she relays.  “Choosing the images is intuitive, random, and fun…when a specific image speaks to me, that’s when I know it’s right.”  Previously working in an abstract minimalist style that focused on color, pattern and texture, Pearl’s current artwork removes any sort of narrative and has no secret meaning.  Her works have been exhibited at Barrett Art Center (Poughkeepsie, NY), Vestige Concept Gallery (Pittsburgh, PA), Cerulean Arts (Philadelphia, PA), Prince Street Gallery (New York, NY), Greenpoint Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), and The Art Center Highland Park (Highland Park, IL).  She has lived all over the world and now resides in New York with a model-maker husband, a perpetually knitting mother, and a great dog.
