Stephen Lapthisophon

 

 

In his most recent works, Stephen Lapthisophon’s experiments working on canvas with the same momentart and loose approach. The mixed media works combine text and letterforms to create poetic improvisations inspired by and referring to deeply buried literary sources. Though the use of unconventional materials such as pigmented animal fats, spices, dirt and coffee grounds, Lapthisphon exalts the everyday and attempts to slow time in order to look longer and unpack hard to find meanings and forgotten histories.
