“When I look back as a child, I was always making big 3-dimentional projects, although I did not see it as art,” says Stephanie Leitch, a Salt Lake City artist preparing for an upcoming exhibit at Nox Contemporary. While studying for her art degree at the University of Utah, Leitch was not interested in the conventional. “I never got a piece of clay and sculpted it or I never chiseled marble.” She says process is what propels an artist. “You are satisfied in the process of something and that something pushes you forward.”
Stephanie Leitch’s newest installation pushes the view forward into an immersive environment where for one night 6000 plastic cups will come alive as a single organism.
