Stephen Pat Brown
Academy Award in Art
"The small, powerful, and compelling paintings of Stephen Brown confront one with an unswerving directness and unnerving sense of inevitability. Brown's paintings are refreshingly and confrontationally figurative. The actuality of paint gleam and glint and the paintings are fulgent, the figures within them are perceived as though magically lit from within. The paintings project reality through the masterly manipulation of plasticity. To achieve a sense of monumentality using so small a scale reveals the achieving hand of the veritable artist."
American Academy of Arts and Letters, May 1994
