Cheap rent. Budget glam. Demolition. Artist Stephanie Armbruster embraces the challenges and opportunities as a rustbelt city native in her solo exhibit, In Search of Something More. Influenced by street art, design and documentary photography, Stephanie Armbruster's new series of encaustic paintings, is a self-described "reckless commentary inspired by the absurdities of urban life, random encounters and the tension of the city in a state of flux."

Recollections of urban living come together in a stream of consciousness rant of vibrant layers riddled with overbearing typography and architectural elements. That her art studio is located in gritty, survivalist Braddock provides an added layer of inspiration. Founded upon her various urban-centric experiences, the city depicted in Stephanie Armbruster's work is informed as much by fiction as reality; the urban environment portrayed in films, books, and song lyrics merges with memory and documentation. Hip-hop and electronic music provide the soundtrack to her work, while street art inspires a playful merging of images and architecture.

About Stephanie Armbruster
Stephanie Armbruster firmly believes that buildings and other structures have relationships with each other. She is deeply amused by pictures of people dressed up in costumes, has an obsession with goldfish, and never sleeps as well as she'd like. Stephanie is in love with typography and architecture and finds endless inspiration in exploring urban spaces, populations and visual textures. Stephanie received her BFA in painting and printmaking from Carnegie Mellon University in 2006, has a studio at UnSmoke Artspace in Braddock, PA and grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, OH. Her recent projects and exhibits include the Flight School for Artists Residency and Mattress Factory Gestures 13.
