About the Item

Vibrant and dynamic monoprint by David Stephens (American, 20th Century). Sand (or a similar medium) was used in the pressing of this monoprint, creating a pocked texture in multiple areas. This piece was also hand-painted with gouache after pressing. Signed and numbered "D Stephens 1/1" in the lower right corner. Presented in a new grey mat with foam core backing. No frame. Image size: 30"H x 22"W In 1989, David Stephens left a corporate career to make his living as an artist. In the years that followed, a growing circle of galleries and collectors were drawn to David's work. Subject matter ranged from landscapes to cityscapes, florals, and figurative images. David often painted Plein air. In the spring of 1996, David and his wife Sylvia opened a gallery in Carmel, California - named for Sylvia Savage, the gallery director, Savage Contemporary Fine Art. Now closed, the gallery’s original vision and values were: To show and sell unique contemporary paintings and sculptures that blend the abstract and the figurative to express archetypal themes. Describing himself, David said: "First and foremost, I am a colorist. I am naturally inclined towards an exploratory, emotional approach because, for me, color connotes a sense of spiritual energy and centeredness. Additionally, many of my images contain spatial elements and movement which lends a sense of expansion. Line, form, and texture also help shape my interpretive, light-filled paintings."
