Andrew Stevovich
Portrait: Yellow Dress

1991

About

Medium: Oil painting on linen A noted contemporary figurative painter, Stevovich grew up in Washington, D.C., and as a young child spent time roaming the halls of the National Gallery of Art, where he was particularly drawn to the Renaissance paintings that would come to inform his work. Stevovich's images depict ordinary men and women in everyday situations and locations -- in restaurants and bars, at the beach, on public transportation -- but their gestures and expressions confused the overall logic of the scene, creating a sense of mystery and allowing for a variety of readings. Since the scenes are so deliberately ambiguous, the viewer plays a much more active role in determining the meaning of the piece. Although Stevovich's paintings are set in the contemporary world, their crisp design, brilliant color, and meticulous surface finishes recall the Renaissance works he loved as a child. He works in oil and pastel and is also an accomplished printmaker and etcher. Stevovich holds degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and the Massachusetts College of Art and is represented in many important public and private collections. His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions across the United States as well as abroad.
