Marcia Stuermer

Loading...

Marcia Stuermer is a San Francisco multidimensional artist working primarily with hand-cast resin as she focuses her attention on the intricacies of nature and the complexities of our current milieu. Central to her work are the elements of surprise, wonder, and unforeseen beauty along with her desire to convert the commonplace into the sublime while she simultaneously unveils undercurrents of her reflections from the world around her. In addition to her studio practice, she is the founder of and creative force behind Stuermer Studios, an innovative studio that creates custom resin work for architectural and interior design projects that demand durable and artistically captivating aesthetics for furnishings and installations. Originally from Ohio, Stuermer studied at the Cooper School of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Art followed by a transfer to the Kansas City Art Institute where she received her BFA in sculpture and drawing. After her artistic studies, she returned to Cleveland, Ohio and immersed herself in the performance and installation art she began during her schooling, taught classes for the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Ohio Arts Council, and received a prestigious Ohio Arts Council Fellowship. In 1988, Marcia relocated to San Francisco, the city that enchanted her on the numerous family cross-country summer road trips of her youth. Nature, science, and unconventional artistic creativity has inspired Stuermer from an early age and those elements, seemingly intrinsic to the San Francisco/Bay Area, continue to inform her work today. Employing that symbiotic relationship of forces, Stuermer uses her alchemy to transform her primary medium of translucent resin, in combination with unexpected materials, into expressive investigations of emotion, thought, and memory as she evokes commentary on topical issues. Exhibited in a wide range of galleries and published extensively in art and design publications world-wide, her work is held in both private and corporate collections in the Bay Area and throughout the US.
