Steve Stones | Pop Art Acrylic Painting
February 1 – March 31

 

Artist Bio:
Steve Stones is a native of Ogden, Utah. He earned a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in Illustration at Weber State University in 1996. He went on to earn a Master's of Fine Arts degree in painting at Utah State University in 2000. He has been teaching in the Department of Visual Art & Design at Weber State University as an adjunct instructor of art for 17 years. 

Artist Statement:
My interests in painting lie in deconstructing, appropriating and dismantling pop-culture and mass media images and symbols. My attempt is to present these images in a new context in order to change how the viewer normally views these symbols. My sources include food packaging, advertising, comic book imagery, carnival banners, animated characters and famous paintings. I appropriate these images to communicate parody and humor in my work. My process involves acrylic paint, collage, airbrush and mixed media techniques.
