Zoë Stiler investigates and invents stories and relics she discovers in her life and dreams, at her home in the high mountain desert of northern New Mexico. She paints and draws in a limited pallet, empirically, using acrylic, pencil, charcoal, ink, oil and wax crayon, enamel spray paint and anything else on hand. Her painting is narrative, sometimes developing into books or theatrical inspiration.
Zoës sculpture often exemplifies an artifact from her stories and imagination. inspired by the elements, light, and movement in nature. She loves sewing, weaving, botanical pressing, micaceous clay building.
Zoë explores kinetic and illuminated elements in these inventions, using the materials she finds exploring the vast outdoors.
