American, b. 1953

A self-described “poppish, post-minimalist geometric painter,” Stephen Westfall creates images that explore color, form, and flatness—and the relationship between these elements—as well as the legacy of Minimalism and the Hard-Edged school. Finding inspiration everywhere from Roman floor tiles to Navajo motifs and game boards to billboards, Westfall makes compositions that engage in dialogue with the art of John McLaughlin, Frank Stella, Agnes Martin, Piet Mondrian, and even Henri Matisse. While his geometric arrangements appear perfectly rendered to the viewer’s eye, the artist insists he doesn’t use tape, instead allowing a hint of the hand to remain.
