High Spirits with Stephanie Mufson

The adorable Stephanie Mufson is a creative force of talent, humor, and enterprising energy. She is another perfect third to the triangle foundation of this week’s Infinite Union:A 3 Woman Art Show. It’s especially wonderful that the Artist Reception on Saturday falls on her birthday and will be quite the celebration!

While she is currently creating constant commercial work as the manager of the Bay Area’s Parade Float and Prop House East West (Aka The Parade Guys) at pier 54 in San Francisco, she is also creating whimsical graphic art pieces. While their sculptural nature adds to the subject, their airy qualities of buoyant joy are quite evident!

Here’s her thoughts on this current work: “Dark and Light. Interior and Exterior. Dreaming and awake. Us and Them. known and unknown. Alan Watts pointed out the obvious truism that you can’t have a front with out a back. They are inherently, inseparably connected, like two sides of the same coin.

The space in between, that liminal tunnel that connects one to its opposite, is the place that connects us all to each other and everything that is. And is not. And lost in the interwoven maze of material and metaphor, like a ship on the ocean, or a balloon amongst the stars, we find our selves tangled, alone. Together.”
