ABOUT/CV

    My name is Reilly Stasienko. I'm a self taught artist from Ohio. I currently live and work out of Cincinnati. Oil Paint strikes the truest chord in me. 

   Death must be involved in order for a painting to come to life. I often tend to destroy my work in time, as an exercise of impermanence.

    Painting is kind of like shootin’, there’s always risk. I can put down the most potent and emotional light. But I must be careful where I aim, because if the dark does not compliment the light, I’ve gone and killed that picture. Even when using a reference, observation does not fully take command in the way I’m painting. The experience of paint and movement are always at play as well. When I’m making an image, I float and I move. I can never stay in one place, I have to get it all down or maybe out of me. When I sit down to work, I am sitting down to document time and space, and the way I am navigating it that day.
