About the Artist

Stephen Ferris plays with discordant figure-ground relationships, making pieces dynamic, unraveling and changing the longer they are viewed. No doubt Steve would prefer you staring into one of his works for ten whole minutes than to view them all casually. These paintings are the result of generally over-thinking things during long bike rides through various Arizona landscapes.
