Ornament And Boredom

2009
Silkscreen on wood

340 x 64 x 2cm

Comprising a composite image and its double, Stephenson’s Ornament & Boredom suggests an underlying discontent beneath the harmonious surface of serial production. This androgynous figure combines the glamour of Warhol’s Pop portraits with the excess and distortions of Baroque sculptural form, becoming a complex hybrid.
