Stephen Elliott Webb

Studio Artist Representative to the Board

As a fifth generation artist from South Carolina's Lowcountry, and the son of two realist artists, it was natural for Stephen Elliott Webb to start painting coastal scenes, in a realistic style, at an early age. His first watercolor, a seascape, was painted at 10 years of age and sold a week later. He continued this rigid, controlled realism for the next six years, exhibiting in a local gallery and competing in local art festivals. "I yearned to explore a more contemporary style. These ambitions were not encouraged." By age 17, Webb rebelled against the established genre. He left his childhood home in Beaufort, South Carolina and moved to Charleston to join the Impressionist art community, where he was both welcomed and encouraged.

"I developed a liberated, impressionistic style and brought it into the public eye during Piccolo Spoleto 1990 at age 20." Webb was the youngest juried artist to participate in the celebrated Charleston art festival. He sold out in three days. "I was shocked at the acceptance of my work. I was experimenting in uncharted waters." His media had moved from watercolor only, to adding casein and acrylic paints to his formula . This was his first movement towards combining opposing forces to create works of art.

In 1992, Webb moved to Atlanta to study and join the ranks of Abstract Expressionists. Gallery wrapped canvas replaced watercolor paper and his images became fields of different media exploding into each other, repelling and attracting all at once. His process uses the forces of gravity, heat and cold along with a controlled sense of abandon. Within some of his works, you may find a forbidden flaw, an intentional slit or gash allowing the paints to be free, to flow without the hand of the artist obstructing the life of the media.

Webb returned to the Lowcountry and Charleston in 2000. He creates his works in Redux Contemporary Art Center.

He has a studio at Redux and divides his time between art and architecture. 

He has an interest in abstract expressionism and minimalist artwork. His artistic efforts have developed out of an interest in deconstructing architectural drafting and rendering techniques and reassembling them into simply composed and precisely rendered non-representational works that contain elements of both drafting and painting. 

His work has been shown at the Corrigan Gallery, Mitchell Hill Gallery, Charleston Arts Festival, The Venue Inn, Jericho Arts and the Piccolo Spoleto Juried Art Show at the City Waterfront Gallery he recently collaborated with Hirona Matsuda on "Wall Line 2" a site specific installation at ArtFields in Lake City.
