The Quietly Surreal Paintings of Chris Stevens

by Danny OldaPosted on

The paintings of artist Chris Stevens have a subtlety surreal air about them.  Backgrounds often fade in and out of abstraction as items and people seem strangely placed.  However, it is really the people that populate his paintings which capture much of the attention of both viewers and the artist.  Steven’s says regarding his work, “The underlying idea of societies stereotyping and bigotry is a constant theme in my work and has been since the early eighties.”  This can be seen through much of his work as his paintings feature a wide variety of people, especially depicting often marginalized ethnic, cultural, and social groups.
