Artist Statement

Stephanie Ong is an artist living and working in Tampa, FL. Her work is a form of visual communication, expressing that which is left unsaid. Working primarily in paint, she uses color and movement to create an abstract balance between development and completion. Ong’s paintings reflect an interest in the layers that go into interpretation, focusing on what gets lost, reinterpreted, and adapted in conversation. Her newest body of work on exhibit in ‘Circa’ relates to thoughts about our relationship to time and historical events that impact and shape our lives.

Stephanie is the newest member of Creatives Exchange Artist Collective, a group of professional women artists working in multiple disciplines. She was a finalist in Artpop Tampa People’s Choice Awards and was awarded Best in Show at the Opus Art Exhibit 2017. Ong has exhibited in solo and group shows in Florida, Nashville and New York City. She currently works out of her studio on Davis Islands.
