Stephen has a keen interest in commercialism and the marketing of home decor, contemporary art, and visual design. Represented by Galleri Urbane, Stephen is prepping for his second solo exhibition, Market Research.

Stephen shares, “In these works, I continue to use the classical composition of still life, but instead of taking a passive approach of displaying these images, I am examining them through dissections and colliding juxtapositions.

The new paintings expand their reach of what they are pulling from, looking at popular gradients and color combinations, to images evocative of logos and signage. Market Research serves as somewhat of a field study for collecting and acquiring the images and pop patterns of today’s commercial world and brings them back to my still life composition for further examination.”

Exceptional technical details.
