I was delighted with the coverage provided by MiChelle Jones in Nashville arts magazine. She captured some great quotes and her observations were really good.  Here are some highlights…

“I try to do figures that are in sort of contemplative or introspective poses. That’s why that show’s called Process of Intuition. The figures look like they even might be partially asleep or meditating,” Stone said during a conversation about his Nashville_Arts_Coverwork. The idea, he said, is to convey “a moment between things that are happening.”

“I’m trying to bridge a gap between modern expressionism and a classical approach to the figure,” he said. The expressionism comes in the way he paints (fast and spontaneously, from the shoulder, not the wrist) and his use of thick brushstrokes. “They’re not just an anatomical study; they’re not just a journalistic approach to capturing the figure. They’re meant to be powerful compositions,” Stone said of his paintings.
