“I feel like art chose me, and I am fascinated by those who are unique to their family’s values, find themselves living a life in art,” says New Mexico Artist Isadora Stowe.
A multi-media artist based in New Mexico, Isadora Stowe creates art using many different mediums. Her work has been featured in numerous exhibitions nationally and in many collections in New Mexico. In addition, she earned a BFA (and a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology) and an MFA in painting and drawing. Over fifteen years ago, she hit the ground running with solo exhibitions in museums, universities, colleges, and galleries.

Isadora works with a variety of mediums, from her projection videos of drawings to her works on rice paper with silkscreen and spray paint. “I am exploring the psychological landscapes of living and working in New Mexico, Texas, and Mexico,” she adds. This will culminate in a solo exhibition “Beacon” that will open next year at Western New Mexico State University.
Symbolic surrealistic images
The idea of delineations of separations and borders, how they are all imagined, is fascinating to Isadora. So she translates these ideas into a large narrative syntax – symbolic surrealistic images. Isadora then uses these language characters to create interrelated stories that move through 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D senses of space.
Many people have influenced Isadora’s work including her family, Art Historian Debra Rindge, and the Artist and Professor Jacklyn St. Aubyn. Moreover, they molded how she thought about art and how she could contribute to it with her own voice.
Sometimes that was through conversations and sometimes it was from watching how they negotiated the world. “They inspire me, they permit me to forge my own life, and that is incredibly important,” says Isadora Stowe.
Work on plexiglass
Currently, Isadora is working on five different pieces. Mainly, she is creating a series of works on plexiglass that glow and create shadows. Isadora is also working on screenprints on wood that have a visual black velvety feel.
