CC Stapleton’s art seeks the holy in the haunted. She strives to build and honor places that allow us to feel who we are.
To haunt something is to return to it frequently, to feel connected to and drawn in, often compulsively and without understanding. Our bodies are temples made of glass, giving sanctuary to these utterly personal feelings but also putting them on display, however obscured to a distant audience. We make our own ghosts and haunt them, as they do us.
Stapleton, an Atlanta native, has more than a decade of experience in fine art, both as a commissioned commercial artist herself and an arts administrator (in art consulting, interior design, and gallery management). She earned a bachelor’s in art history with a minor in studio art from Georgia State University, where she concentrated her studies on devotional imagery and religious iconography.
