Gary Stephan Untitled 2017 acrylic on canvas 30" x 30"
As many viewers of this blog know, I am a fan of Gary Stephan. He along with Mary Heilman and a few others that I repeatedly show are touchstones in art for me. Stephan will be exhibiting new works at Galerie Grolle Fredrich-Ebert and Klenzie Art Foundation in Germany this Fall. I am still waiting for the major retrospective he so richly deserves here in the U.S.
Stephan's new work continues his interest in formal abstraction while alluding to illusionary elements that set the viewers experience somewhat askew. He makes paintings that always make me think he is a conjurer of the unexpected in the most wonderful way possible.
