Panoramic Texas Series
J.R. Mooney Galleries, Boerne
Bastrop fires, unrelenting skylines, sublime mentalities, conceptual collectiveness, universal experiences, and intuitive automatism all play a role in Russell Stephenson’s new paintings titled, “Panoramic Texas Series”. A tribute to the Texas sky, the flat plains of Midland/Odessa, the rolling Hill Country, and the wide open plains to the Pan-handle typography, Stephenson depicts all that is our great state of Texas in minimally rendered but systematically charged abstracted landscapes.
New to J.R. Mooney Galleries, Russell Stephenson is one of the first Contemporary Texas Painters to be accessioned onto the J.R Mooney roster of artists in the J.R. Mooney Galleries of Fine Art Boerne, in a christened program called JRM Lab.
In JRM Lab (a strike to bring more successful and midcareer contemporary artists to the Hill Country)-- Stephenson brings a youthful energy, a polished contemporary aesthetic while maintaining roots in traditional approach. His art captures a sense of divine intervention, one that shapes the world around us; the gold accents, the earthy tones, and heavens and the horizons- each combining to conjure up a transcendent typography that radiates perfection.
In his Panoramic Texas Series we can meditate on the horizontal fixations that represent such cosmic altruisms, rich with beauty but toned with hues variegated into a hazy manifestation.
We are ultimately engulfed by the subtleness that engulfs the gestalt of the work and reflects the tranquility of the world around us.
