b. 1941 in Chicago, Illinois; lives in Houston, Texas
Stack’s untitled Tamarind print from 1988 extends her use of mark-making to create an unsettling yet engaging cluster of activity that includes floating, cherub-like babies, a pseudo-parental overseer, hints of hovering black birds, and veiled scrawled messages.
She received a BFA from the University of Illinois in Urbana and a MFA from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and has received critical attention. Group exhibitions include the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX; the El Paso Museum, El Paso, TX; the Blanton Museum, Austin, TS; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; the Menil Collection, Houston, TX; Stedman/Hubbard Gallery, Paris, France and others. She is currently the John and Rebecca Moores Professor of Art at the University of Houston, where she formerly headed a department that has become the region’s premier training ground for the visual arts.
