This event has ended.

Stephens draws inspiration from his surroundings; often painting his two young boys or animals on a neighboring farm. His animals are personified through the use of subtle human expressions and choice placement on the canvas. He uses oil paints as a sculptural medium imbedding shapes into the impasto and emphasizing each brush stroke. His backgrounds are sometimes abstract blends of colors created with varying levels of paint thickness that, at times, allow the canvas or under-painting to be revealed. While his subjects may be simple, his paintings carry an emotional weight that is further emphasized with long, poetic titles. Among his most revered influences are Giorgio Morandi and Joseph Beuys.
