Growing up in rural New Jersey, Lily Stockman—whose juiced-orange and azurite-blue compositions make her a daring master in the world of contemporary abstraction—spent thousands of hours drawing on ice as a child. The eldest of four girls, her family had an old cow pond. “Kids would come over in the winters from sunup to sundown. It was always a race to get out on the pond in the morning,” recalls Stockman, who played ice hockey into her teens. “There’s no more beautiful way to make a mark than drawing with your entire body.”
