Steph Guidera is a painter living and working in Minneapolis. Interested in humanity navigating this modern world and drawn to historic representational art, her work explores that space between tradition and evolution. The work is figurative, and while rooted in reality, includes elements of the unseen and uncomfortable. Focused on the technical process and potential communication with viewers, the desire to transform thought and evoke emotion drives the content and design of her pieces. She has exhibited locally and abroad and studied at Concordia University, St. Paul (BA, 2008).
