BEAUTY: Painting--Amber Koroluk-Stephenson

Amber Koroluk-Stephenson lives in Australia but paints suburbs that look like suburbs no matter they are in the world. And like so many artists who portray the suburbs in some form or another, Koroluk-Stephenson perceives that slippery, indefinable creepiness inherent in the suburbs. I was going to talk about the narrative in these images, but they actually seem to exist in some kind of pre-narrative state, suspended in a stillness, full of mystery.
