Artist Jim Stevens sees the world through a pin-sized hole, but his monofilament and abstract linear paintings show a different kind of vision.
He talked about his artistic process and his journey during a presentation at Main Street Creatives Gallery, 36 South Main Street, on Thursday, March 16.
Stevens creates monofilament portraits with fishing line strung up inside clear boxes held in place by sterling silver. Each painting has eight layers hand-painted by Stevens. He paints each layer exactly the same and arranges them so everything lines up.
