Stephanie Temma Hier (b. 1992, Canada) is a multimedia artist living and working in New York whose practice combines ceramic, sculptural frames with meticulously detailed oil paintings and focuses on the dialogue that is created through these pairings.
Evening Shadows and a Skittish Whisper presents ceramic reproductions of items commonly provided to hotel guests — toothbrushes, soaps, slippers — framing a viscerally sensuous painting of hands grasping sheets in the dark. This intimate moment washed in the soft glow of red neon creates a uniquely distinct sense of place.
