Spring Fog recalls Stockman’s childhood growing up in the rural Northeast—early morning mist rising off a cow pond, the universe inside a clutch of frog’s eggs and the sound of spring peepers. Stockman’s work is informed by her interest in the legacy of female New England poets, including Emily Dickinson, Susan Howe and Mary Ruefle, and how they locate the self in nature.

Lily Stockman builds up linen surfaces in layers of luminous oil to create her distinctive and highly personal canvases of biomorphic shapes, planes and borders. Her work draws from her affinity for the natural world as well as her interest in the organizing principles of different structures, including poetic meter and musical form. Her apprenticeship studying miniature painting in India and her love of landscape both inform her artistic practice.
