Painting, Photography, and Music by Stephen Harriger
Stephen Harriger is a multimedia artist working in drawing, painting, photography, and music - even sculpture. The works in Stephen’s portfolio sometimes seem to inform each other, for example, in photographs translated into paintings or drawing.
Stephen’s works are figurative, and the artist seems drawn to a few subjects in particular. Sports figures, particularly baseball and football players, feature in both his “other media” and “digital airbrush” galleries. I find Stephen’s digital airbrush works quite interesting – they seem to begin with a photograph, which the artist then edits into a smooth, simplified work that holds the appearance of soft airbrush blending.
I also rather like the lamps that Stephen has made – though he only has a couple examples on his portfolio, the bird-cage-like wooden structures are somehow inviting, particularly as they are photographed in dim spaces, shining brightly.
