Stephany Marlene (b. 1988) is a Mexican self-taught artist based and working in Stavanger, Norway.
Her work is surrealist, focusing on the watercolor technique, taking as subject human emotions and physical sensations, much of her work is influenced mainly by psychology, meditation and anatomy.
In the composition, she presents a concept that has been developed over time called "SERES", which can take a secondary role through action, thought or feeling in her works. The recurring elements such as floating eyes, triple faces and petals, creating an emotional confusion that provides a contrast between curiosity and mystery.
Stephany dedicates her work to introspection, and the acknowledgement of our own shadows as a means to become whole as humans. SERES, or "beings" are the representation of our own creations, which are not us, but form a pact with us and shape us into our growth or downfall. Human anatomy, in its deepest meaning, counteracts SERES as our own physical and earthly connection. It is the dance between ideals and our body that shape us and makes us… us.
