Sophisticated Folk

Bill Stephens at Axom Gallery

The complex character of the folk art inspired ceramic creations of Bill Stephens, on view at the Axom Gallery, can be quite funny and challenging at the same time.  I have one of his little pieces at home ( it is a clown ) and I am always amused by its outward expressiveness and its determined nature to go against art world trends.  I am all for going against the demands of the system, I like challenging the norms as well, so in part I am attracted to Bill Stephens art because of the freedom he has to be himself and to let things develop, without always looking over his shoulder at what should
be done.
