Stan Shellabarger

Stan Shellabarger’s performances, works on paper, prints, and artists' books employ alternative drawing methods, addressing the body and the Earth to create minimal abstract objects. He takes everyday activities like walking, writing, and breathing to extreme measures in endurance-based performance works. The repetition of the activity leads to massive accumulations of marks, recording discrete units of time and space that amplify traces humans leave on the Earth; repetition is necessary so that these extremely subtle marks emerge as visible artistic interventions.


His work has been shown at Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMAC) in Nice, France; MCA Chicago; Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh, North Carolina; Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Wisconsin; Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago.
