A compendium of daily image making by Craig Stephens
Thursday, January 08, 2009
I like the look of these old staplers. It almost seems like the designers paid no attention to aesthetics, right down to the completely nondescript beige. These anonymous fastening devices did their job and didn't ask for attention.
I am an artist living in Northern California. In 1993 I graduated from
U.C. Davis where I took classes from Wayne Thiebaud, Dave Hollowell and Roy DeForest. I currently teach art at Chana High School in Auburn California. On this blog I have posted 1000 paintings in as many days. I took a break from that strict schedule for a couple of years but since the beginning of 2014 I have been completing one small painting on a daily basis. The practice of completing a painting a day suits my disposition and aesthetic. I have also found that modeling this sort of daily practice for my students is important. I am making these paintings available on ebay. Thanks for stopping by and check back often if you like what you see.
