"Stella's paintings of everyday life are easily recognizable with their unique iconography, bright, almost screaming colours, and her self-reflection of an on going socio-cultural context. Her paintings are not as decorative as they look like at first glance, they are deeply ironic. She elaborates on capitalistic and material western logic and applies it literally on her canvases. "
