Stella Untalan

I'm an artist living and working in Philadelphia. I make works on paper.

My drawings focus on measurement and probing.

Each series of marks is made by filling a tool then making marks until the liquid is gone. The repetition allows me to be caught up in a rhythm; the proximity of the marks create rest and action. I touch the surface, make the mark, and then move away. In this work the process defines the outcome. It is minimalist, repetitive, and iterative. In my work a topology of process is revealed.

My work is in several private collections.

Time time time is about the ritual of checking the time of day. You look at your watch or your phone and see the time.
