Stephen Lack


"Mercy Punch"
Acrylic/Canvas 1985
Artist: Stephen Lack
A quick glimpse of rage before the internet diluted us and mutated our emotions into asides and sloganeering etc.... no judgements.



This is called "All Things Imperial" Yet another of my freewheeling images of the glory and power of the good years ! Oil/canvas 2008 66"x80"(approx) The car is , as is frequently the case, dedicated to the feeling of the moment rather than the accuracy of the vehicle... having a taste of the Oldsmobile 98; Chrysler Imperial, Caddillac, and the Lincoln Continental.
.

I hate writing about myself. "Lack is like most of us, a celebration of contradictions that only look like stasis for a second before moving on. He thinks of himself as a verb more than a noun. His affection for the external world runs unabashed throughout the work, and the internal conflict with that love informs its multilayered effect."..
