Artist Statement

Transage 

Perception and process interest me. Transage is a process I developed and which I have been perfecting over the years. It is a labor intensive technique which allows me to take quotidian media and then deconstruct and destroy the original - leaving its image without leaving its source.

I have made a new surface in which I can draw over my existing images... if so inclined. This surface has the ability to reveal images when wet. The aspect of being able to reveal what lies hidden is only enhanced as the viewer is compelled to watch the image that soon disappears as it begins to dry.

In this series, I attempt to capture that space between memory and loss encouraging the viewer to remain attentive longer, think deeper.. perhaps, about one's own mortality.

Images 1-3 from a proposal for a submission (2006) would have been installed in East River Park, Brooklyn,NY, to warn of the risk of Global warming and its effects in our area.

Artist Bio / CV

After graduating Alfred University, Stephen got the opportunity of a lifetime - to travel the world, working in fashion. His look was a hit and led to living for years at a time in Tokyo, London, and Paris. All this world travel coincided beautifully with his desire to see the world’s art collections, monuments, and museums.

 

Stephen was photographed by Albert Watson, Bruce Weber to name a few; working with top creatives as Serge Gainsbourg, designers Tom Ford, Versace. 

 

Next, renovating a Belle Epoque villa in Oostende. Working with Bitumen of Judea, Stephen began to implement a modified version of the material in future works for a 1998 solo show in New York.

 

Using skills honed in Europe, Stephen started making jewelry, testing and selling the sculptural shapes on the streets of Soho. Interest in the colorful bold shapes increased which lead to the opening of a Boutique in Nolita . 

 

Throughout these years, Stephen was producing paintings and sculptures that exhibited in Cologne, Brussels. He wrote and illustrated two children’s books which received positive reviews from the editors of Houghton Mifflin and Little Brown Books.

 

In 2002,  creating a new process named “Trans-age.” This process enabled him to produce a hard-wearing, flexible material that was perfect for accessories. He started to manufacture a line using this new textile under the label “toi pour moi.” The first “toi pour moi” collection debuted at New York fashion emporium Henri Bendel in the summer of 2002. Soon, the wearable and carry-able cutting edge collage-inspired collection was sold out. Fashionistas and galleristas had snapped up one-of-a-kind bags and delighted in the fact that each was signed and numbered by the artist. Sold in stores in Tokyo, Paris, London a well as Bloomingdale’s.

 

Interspersed throughout all these chapters of life are many series of artwork, drawings, paintings, sculptures created and archived. Layers of life too nuanced and numerous to list. .
