I Wish I Was on Holiday: New Paintings by Matte Stephens
May 7 – June 1, 2010; reception date: May 7, 2010
San Francisco design store and gallery, Rare Device, is proud to present I Wish I was on Holiday: New Paintings by Matte Stephens. The work will occupy the Rare Device gallery May 7 – June 1, 2010. A reception for the show will be held Friday, May 7, 2010 from 7 - 9 pm.
Inspired by the fine art of living, Matte Stephens (http://www.matteart.net) paints with gouache his happy visions of today’s optimistic friends and families with a refined twist. He has a fondness for anything old and all friendly creatures. These inspirations are apparent through his color palate and immediate sense of whimsy and design elements found in his paintings. They are both friendly and reminiscent of a simpler time he wishes was today. His illustration clients include Herman Miller, American Express and IBM.
