I think these works place Steciw in a different category than the countless digital image appropriators and manipulators at work today; I think she is coming from a different conceptual place. She's way out on the edge where the photographs have become cold objects and the digital transformations have become a dance recognizable to the computer savvy. She's playing with both virtual and physical space, with texture and surface, the stock photographs and the other accoutrements abstracted and yet still somewhat representative of their original selves. It's a new aesthetic, with new associations, firmly rooted in our ever evolving Internet reality.
Collector's POV: The 3 mixed media prints in this exhibit are priced at $6500 each. Steciw's work has not yet reached the secondary markets, so gallery retail is likely the best option for those collectors interested in following up.
