Featuring: Stephen Spartana
Opening reception to be held January 4, 6-8 pm.
Researching different perspectives of the natural world, venturing at times to create images that are more fantasy than reality, Stephen Spartana’s HumanNature, Life in Layers is a selection of images created over the last two years. Stephen’s work utilizes a number of images which function in the same way that painters use brushes and paint palettes; his tools are a combination of various analog films mixed with digital and paint media. His intention is to create a provocative image, a complex and dynamic blend that invites the viewer to look deeper.
STEPHEN SPARTANA holds a BFA in photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art. While continuing his successful commercial career, Stephen has returned to his love of fine art photography which began in the 1990’s with 2 exhibits at the Gomez Gallery. Last year, his Interwoven series won international acclaim with Honorable Mentions at China and Tokyo photography exhibitions and a Bronze Award at the Moscow International Foto Awards.
