Stacey Lee Webber

Investigating a variety of raw materials and pushing their intrinsic limitations to the point of beauty or often times disaster is continually enthralling. Stacey Lee Webber cherishes working with found materials whose history is physically evident. Imagine a copper penny lying on the sidewalk. On that stamped coin there are dents, scratches, a dull patina, and a worn down image of Abraham Lincoln. Each irregularity is further evidence of its rich history of being passed through the hands of countless people. When that penny is picked up and used to fabricate art it is inherently layered with rich stories of struggle and triumph. Through material, labor and technique Stacey strives to make artwork that impacts a broad range of viewers and, when acquired, enriches the life of its owner.
