Megan Stroech is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Stroech’s work utilizes fabric cut outs and collaged found materials to explore dichotomies between realness and artificiality, image and object, and common vs. luxury through references from domesticity, still life and the body. Stroech received an MFA in Printmaking from Illinois State University in 2012, and BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Stroech will be a resident artist in the 2019 Cooper Union Summer Art Intensive Program (NYC) and was recently awarded the Merit Fellowship at Vermont Studio Center and Staff Development Grant at Parsons School of Design. Stroech has completed residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Anderson Ranch Art Center, Wassaic Project, Chicago Artists Coalition, and ACRE. Recent exhibitions include: EXPO Chicago, Field Projects (NYC), ROCKELMANN& (Berlin), CES Gallery (LA) and an upcoming feature in New American Paintings Magazine’s Northeastern Issue #140.
