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. Presented in a new grey mat with foam core backing. Unsigned with a notation 1/1 on verso. From a collection of his signed works. Mat size: 36"H x 24"W Paper 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."

    About: Alena's artistic approach is intuitive and gestural. She often works with a limited color palette of encaustic pigment and uses an iterative and spontaneous approach to apply the media. The final phases of creation sometimes include additional intuitive mark-making, subtle line work and sentimental hand-written text from historical, contemporary, or autobiographical sources. Washi Paper: The texture and slight distress in select areas near certain media application is intentional and intended to be part of the overall aesthetic. Shipping: The artwork will be rolled, shipped in a tube, and take approximately 5 business days. For shorter delivery timelines please message Alena directly to make arrangements. Matte and Frame Ideas: Float frames (glass/no glass over the monotype; glass will "flatten" the monotype) Traditional frames with or without a matte When framing the monotype a light ivory or white matte board illuminates the colors. For assistance and/or advice with framing and mounting the monotypes, please contact me directly. Signature and Certificate All artworks are signed on the back in pencil and include the title, creation year, and my signature. A certificate of authenticity is also included with the artwork. ++++ Alena Ahrens is a contemporary American-Asian artist. She studied performance art at MoMA...
