Exploring Colors and Geometry with @stellamariabaer

Stella Maria Baer (@stellamariabaer) grew up immersed in the tones and shapes of New Mexico’s high mountain desert. Her recent works, which explore color, geometry and the human form, reflect Stella’s upbringing in the American Southwest. “I tend to gravitate toward particular colors for a period of time, both in my paintings and in my life in general,” she says. “My Instagram feed maps the ebb and flow of my relationship with color.”

Instagram for Stella is not just about bringing people into her studio. She explains, “It’s become its own medium for me—a collage of things I make, places I travel and people’s interactions with what I create.” Stella seeks to inspire others with her work, but has also connected with other women artists who, she says, “inspire me daily to seek out what it is that I am uniquely meant to make.”
