Gary Stephan (American)
Born 1942, Brooklyn, NY
Lives and works in New York City and Stone Ridge, NY
Gary Stephan has found plenty to work with in his paintings and prints, including chaos, decay and especially bizarre contrasts. He knits together his disparate images into surreal abstractions.
Stephan has been showing his painting and sculpture since the late sixties in the United States and Europe. He has had solo shows in New York at Mary Boone Gallery, Hirschl and Adler and Marlborough Gallery; in Los Angeles at Margo Leavin Gallery and Daniel Weinberg Gallery; and in Berlin at Galerie Keinzle and Gmeiner, among many others.
Gary Stephan’s work can be found in the collections of the Solomon R.Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, in New York.
