Allan Stephenson

"I apply myself to a traditional subject - the landscape, and a traditional approach to rendering that landscape."

An admitted traditionalist, he is not trying to break any new ground with his art. His goals focus on revealing the poeticism of trees, the beauty that man and nature may form in cooperation, and the serendipity that can result from fortuitous accidents upon the surface of the paper or the canvas.

Much of his work has been done in oils but prefers to work in pastel because of its "hands-on" direct quality. Stephenson sculpts and blends pigments to create lively textures in his images.

His imagery is of the places he has been lucky enough to visit. He does not paint "plein air" but instead tries to make an almost symbolic representation of a place. His aims are the continuation of a certain kind of painting that has a mystical vein within it attached to the land. He hopes that by this art he can give both the viewer and himself some escape from the frenetic world we all sometimes find ourselves in.
