NOBELARTS provides designers the unique opportunity to purchase at trade prices or commission works of art tailored to your shared vision. With a sublime grid as his starting point, Stephen merges the improvisational attitude of a jazz musician with a formalist's rigor and touch.

Artist's Statement

Every artist intends that another person sees in the art that which the artist sees, therby forming a personal attachment; seeing what I see. In my art, I see color dancing in abstract patterns like ballet or modern dance on stage. That is why I refer to my art as choreography, accompanied by improvisational jazz or contemporary orchestrations. A designer-friend said about my work, “my eyes dance on the surface.” For me, that’s delightful reward. And as delightfully decorative, it can be given its place in interior design above a console, commode, chest of drawers or anywhere that welcomes color.

The Process

Each vibrant section of hand-shaped Canson Mi-Teintes® paper is layered and juxtaposed with complementary forms and colors that live in harmony with one another, evoking the storied traditions of weaving and mosaic.
