Gary G. Stevenson, (Artist)

Below you will find several pieces of art work that were produced by Gary G. Stevenson. These images are broken into four types: Paintings, Drawings, Photographs and Sculpture.

I once heard it said of the artist Matesse, that he felt an artist should work ten years in black & white to understand intensity and contrast, before painting in color. To understand this statement, I studied the subject without color for two years. Of the fourteen paintings shown here, six were executed using only black & white paint. These images were painted with brush, in black & white. Differences in tonal quality were accomplished by using both Mars & Ivory Blacks. The dash was painted in some areas with brush and others an air brush.

While interested in painting for painting's sake, I personally enjoy the challenges that Photo-Realism brought to creating painted imagery. Somewhere during my painting pratice, I started an in-depth study of photography and used this medium to document images. This allowed me to begin to paint using knives over brushes. These new images seem to be much more alive.
