In Stephanie Temma Hier's sculptural paintings, impossible entanglements drip with verisimilitude despite their artifice. Digitally influenced images are transcribed in paint and clay, creating an uncanny linkage between representation and physicality. The consumption rate of the image is stalled and this consideration turns into proliferation, an infringing physical reality, an echo of matter like how one passing thought can overtake an entire day. The Weight of My Yolk examines two similar forms of nature: an egg and a flower. There is visual harmony among these objects, centers of vibrant yellow surrounded by soft white, yet tension arises as one considers how this exposure was made possible, with eggs cracked open by absent hands and flowers remaining untouched.
