About this Item

Gary Stephens
American 1962-
The Shimmering White Scarf

signed; signed, dated 2013 and inscribed with the title on a label adhered to the reverse

charcoal on folded paper with string
113 by 130cm excluding frame

Notes

"The piece combines my interest in African head scarves as symbols of everyday beauty and my on-going fascination with pattern, stripes, and fractured images. The shimmering effect of palm leaves dancing in a breeze is accentuated by the folded paper and string system. I tried to capture a sense of vibration, a fleeting glance in evening light. As the viewer moves, the piece should contain a sense of ethereal motion."
