Steve Stones is an Ogden native and Adjunct Professor of Art at Weber State University. He states “My interest in painting lie in the deconstructing, appropriating and dismantling pop-culture, mass media images and symbols. My attempt is to present these images inn a new context in order to change how the viewer normally views these symbols. My sources include food packaging, advertising, comic book imagery, carnival banners, animated characters and famous paintings. I appropriate these images to communicate parody and humor in my work. My process involves acrylic paint, collage, airbrush and mixed media techniques.
