Stephen Felton has described his process of creating work as reflective not only of his emotions, but on the atmosphere of his actions, decisions and lifestyle. All of Stephen’s paintings are created using a language that Stephen has been working to perfect throughout his career. Stephen is inspired by whatever is around him. He draws from life. The content of his paintings always has to do with what he is going through on that particular day.
Stephen insists he can never paint the same thing twice, because each time he touches a brush to canvas it is influenced by his mood and the circumstances of that particular day. In this way, he considers his paintings as documentaries. Felton’s works speak loudly to the present atmosphere in painting, walking away from historical predilections. Within each piece, the instigating thought process can be experienced as the launch pad for the artist’s journey through the work. Each proceeding piece refines and deepens the language of Felton’s paintings.
