Colorado-based painter Stephen Austin creates intricate geometric abstractions that mimic the flow of energy throughout the universe. He observes that regardless of scale, whether inside a teacup or across the solar system, patterns of motion repeat themselves. His paintings reconstruct natural forces that connect micro- and macrocosms, such as traveling light, diffusing particles and dissipating energy. "My art is straightforward in that it visually represents whatever the title may be," explains Stephen. "The final image depicts highly geometric analysis and reconstruction of the subject." The forms are restless and dynamic; they appear to twist and roll through space. To create his paintings, he begins by compiling several rapidly-drawn gestural sketches. Then, he reworks these sketches with close analysis to build the final composition. His work has been featured in the New York Times Sunday Magazine and he has had numerous solo shows in Colorado.

About The Artist
These paintings depict restless forms which dance, twist and roll through space. Here a multitude of atmospheric phenomena undergo dynamic, restless movement of often complex geometric arrangements of multi-layered shapes. The predominantly vertical orientation of the paintings compliments the upward, weightless movement of clouds. Indeed, these tightly rendered, exquisitely intricate forms mimic the chaotic dance of air currents but could easily represent all manner of physical forces within our universe.
My painting style relies on highly complicated geometric compositions rendered in an abstract style. I would also describe my style as contemporary because it is visually appealing to persons across a wide spectrum of tastes. My aim is to invite the viewer to explore the depths and intricacies of work where a genuine intimacy can be realized.
