Interiors with figures is an on-going theme in Stephanie Sampson’s oil paintings. She lets searching brushstrokes, drips, and some white canvas remain visible so that the viewer can experience the building marks of a painting. “Woman in a Room” series was painted from life, from a live model in the artist’s Athens studio. Painting one’s experience or environment with an extreme economy of means, trying to get the most with the least, is one of Sampson’s key aims.
