Stephen Namara
Face and Body / figurative work, woman in a museum

2019

$8,000

About

Face and Body is a stunningly gorgeous original work of art from Kenyan born American artist Stephen Namara who is widely known for creating paintings and masterful drawings created with pencil, conté crayon, and dry powder pigments. He has been exhibiting in the U.S. since 1980. Namara’s artistic abilities and his involved research into his subjects have enabled him to produce a highly acclaimed body of work that is held in major corporate, state, and university collections, and he is the recipient of numerous, important drawing prizes. Namara’s portrayals of people are not so much “portraits”, as they are “anti-portraits”. In an ongoing act of self-discovery, the artist instinctively makes his works by universalizing and abstracting humanity, rather than attempting to capture any single individual. According to the artist, a good work of art goes “beyond the line”. It is conscious, refers to art history, and makes one ask themselves, "what does this mean?” While a really good work of art forces one to consider things beyond the work itself. Face and Body is 30 x 37 inches and is professionally framed in a museum quality minimal hardwood (maple) stem frame with an outer dimension of 33 1/2 x 40 3/4 inches. Artist signed verso. Condition is new. Created in 2019.
