Stephen Poling
Santa Fe, New Mexico

Stephen Poling hopes to explore the potential of painting in his works. He sees painting as a way to “express the power, beauty and mystery of life.” Art movements like Art Informel and Abstract Expressionism continue to influence his work. When he’s not painting, he enjoys cooking, hiking and traveling. He especially loves visiting Italy and is learning to speaking Italian. Stephen currently lives in New Mexico. Fun fact: at age three he painted the family cat bubble gum pink.

Artist and Customer Comments

Thank you Raoul, it's great to know people out there are liking my work - I appreciate your comment! As you've noticed, I love the Bay Area Figurative painters and also de Kooning's figurative work. Thanks again - Stephen

R De Chant 12/3/2015 | 2:38 PM

Your figurative paintings are truly exceptional, much in the tradition of the great Bay Area artists such as David Park and Paul Wonner. Keep up the good work....

Stephen Poling 5/16/2014 | 4:15 PM

Hello P Hammonds, Thank you for your positive comments! I'm trying to paint energy and life using expressive drawing and color - I'm glad you like the paintings!

This is special. More like this...the uniquely feminine geometry - angles, curves + your sense of color.

M Rubenstein 2/11/2013 | 12:55 AM

your interpretation of the nude form is magical...really good... thx

N Bell 5/17/2012 | 2:45 PM
