Introducing Stephen’s work
Today I shall talk about my husband Stephen’s latest work of art.
Stephen comes from a very artistic family who ran their own art and architecture studio for fee-paying clients in the Channel Islands. Both of his parents created artwork that could take your breath away; they worked in pencil, water colours, acrylics, crayons and oils. Stephen inherited their talents to draw, paint, design and make anything he sets his mind to.
Straight after Stephen won The JJ Fox International Art Competition in 1981 all of his artworks sold from the gallery where they were on display and are still hung in corporate board rooms and homes in the UK and the Channel Islands. Then we migrated to Australia and raised our two sons. Life has a way of getting in the way lol when busy raising family and busy making a living. His passion for art and sculpture is yet to take shape in Australia but he’s not too far from it now. 🙂
Today I would like to share with you another type of his artwork, in fact it is a sculpture, which you can view by clicking this link. http://www.simplysarj.com.au/stephens-projects/ This is a much bigger artwork, it is 6.9m x 2.5m!
He has made a panel for our new garage door invention. It is copper coated and it looks surreal when the light catches it. Next to this panel you’ll see our home re-modelling coming along nicely with the artwork glass gate and high wooden fence which he designed, painted and built all by himself. 🙂
I am really proud of his latest unique work even though this winter’s exceptional downpours delayed its completion, now others can see the result of his persistence against all odds. It has only been up a few days and already onlookers are commenting on how attractive it is and congratulate him on his solo effort as an artist. Cars slow down to look at it too.
His desire to create something unique meant that he was never going to give it up, no matter how hard it was to make. The panel fits in well with the surrounding gum trees and the natural vegetation on each side. When car lights shine on it at night it shimmers. It really looks ‘unreal’ but it is actually there for all to see and touch if they don’t believe it is real.
After all of the weather delays in the prototyping processes in the open air I can proudly say ‘well done for not giving up!’
If you like what you see please forward this link to any of your family and friends.
Those of you who wish to have one made please send us your details and I’ll get Stephen to speak with you. They can be made in any colour by an appointed fiberglass company in Adelaide.
I personally would like to see these panels by the pool as a screen wall or fence in shimmering green and blue colours. I would love it if Stephen decides to fence off the front of our property with this panel and the next styles he plans to prototype too…..
The list is long and if you have a comment or a suggestions or ideas for other panel design please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Stephen or myself via this link and leave your details please and a private message can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
