Introducing Stacey Welchley!



Growing up in New Orleans, LA infused in me the idea that art, wine and socializing were meant to be together. After high school, I joined the US Navy as an Illustrator Draftsman and continued my interest in strong lined animation style art. After that, I got my first taste of Texas when I became an Aggie. Post college, I returned to my hometown to recharge my batteries and get a good dose of gumbo. But I wasn’t done with the Lone Star State yet. In 2003, I relocated to Houston and made my home here.



My artistic emphasis was on animation and through the years that focus has evolved into the reverse painting it is today. As we move through life we see things that shift our perception. That is exactly what my paintings are supposed to do. At first glance, you are viewing a two-dimensional image, but look closer…



I begin, like most artists do, with an idea or concept in my head. After translating it to paper, I begin building the layers of Plexiglas on top of it. The painting process is precise and demanding. Great care is taken that no mistake is made. They are extraordinarily difficult to correct if they can be at all. All contours are outlined on the surface of the Plexiglas - and the actual painting process is reversed - details and highlights are painted first then the mid-ground and finally the background is applied. Once I feel the work is complete, or the time to abandon the piece has arrived, the pane is turned over and the true face of the artwork is revealed. Separating each layer in the framing process gives a two-dimensional painting an unexpected element of depth. Changing the light source also adds to the illusion by casting dynamic shadows inside the piece.



The viewer is literally looking at the picture through a transparent canvas obtaining the perception that the work is imbedded in the glass. The space between the layers adds the illusion of depth and the shadows that are created inside the piece add to the illusion. Thus…a flat image is turned into a dynamic, engaging piece of artwork.
