Paintings by the duo of Alice Stepanek & Steve Maslin sell for over $13,000. in European galleries....Exquisitely Beautiful and Powerful painting, a delicate Blue Rose still standing amid Ocean Waves! Exquisite original Collaborative Oil Painting by duo Alice Stepanek and Steven Maslin. (England / Germany)... Dating to 1988, signed on versa, with original Daniel Newberg Gallery of 580 Broadway NYC label on back. (This gallery was honored at the NYC Frieze Art Fair in 2016.) Paintings by this incredibly talented artist duo are widely collected, from private collections to important institutions such as The Deutsche Bank.
In the early 1980s, Alice Stepanek and Steven Maslin met while both still studying at the Saint Martin’s School of Art in London. This encounter gave way to a lasting collaboration that up to this day accounts for a personal assessment of what it means to be in the world –understood as a transcendental experience... Composed out of a selection of separate elements, each of Stepanek & Maslin’s paintings expands in bright colours and powerful contrasts. Each of them is like a clear cut crystal that seems to simultaneously absorb and project the light from its centre. While it is the viewer’s mind that becomes the playground for such a movement, Stepanek & Maslin’s paintings crystallise different visual references and therefore engage the viewer with different thinking processes. They seem, for instance, to be monumental herbariums in which flowers and tiles have been pressed between the respective bellies of earths, skies and clouds. They might also be fish-eye views taken from insect-like perspectives. They glimpse at the immensity of the universe, yet they are suffused with tender respect for everything that is small and fragile. Stepanek & Maslin’s artistic mastery merges the macro- and the micro- cosmos into a peaceful whole at human scale. Though absent from its visual vocabulary, it is this human being that stands at the core of their work, for the intuition of the sublime residing in all things is the appendage of the ethic being. ... These speak of a utopian place where the tensions between culture and nature, society and the individual, resolve in a sense of total harmony. ..
This Amazingly Beautiful Painting is Housed in a Beautiful Gold-Gilt Frame, and measures 30" x 20" 1/2 inches, including Frame. Fabulous!
