American, 1942 - Present
Gary Stephan is an artist who was born in 1942 in Brooklyn, New York. The artist has exhibited his work throughout the United States and Europe. Exhibiting since the late 1960s, Stephan creates Postmodern art in the form of idiosyncratically abstract paintings and prints, sculpture, photography, and video art. His work has been exhibited at institutions including the Drawing Center, the MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Whitney Museum.
As an abstract painter, Stephan evades the obvious seductive charms that painting offers. He is a rigorous formalist painter. Part of the strength of Stephan’s work is the way it engages our imagination through metaphor-eliciting ambiguities. All the feelings connected with these various interpretations coexist in the emotional resonance of his paintings.
The artist currently resides and works in Tribeca, NY with his partner and fellow artist Suzanne Joelson.
