Familiarity is fickle; memory is unreliable; and nostalgia is negation. B. Thom Stevenson’s practice ― which spans drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, and performance ― recognizes and embraces these truisms by subjecting imagery culled from an eclectic selection of sources to a series deconstructionist reworking’s until the images are renewed afresh. His references include niche yet ubiquitous materials such as informational leaflets, anarchist manifestos, DIY culture, cult horror movies, vintage quilt templates, and Celtic stone carvings only to name a few.B. Thom Stevenson will mount an upcoming solo show at Commune Gallery (Tokyo, Japan). Stevenson has exhibited at MoMA (New York), Interstate Projects (Brooklyn), The Journal (Brooklyn), Half Gallery (New York), Various Small Fires (Los Angeles), V1 (Copenhagen), New Release (New York), Steinsland Berliner (Stockholm), and Fisher Parrish (New York). B. Thom Stevenson was born in Worcester, MA and now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
