Stephen Campbell - Stimmung in a Stimmung
Original Oil Painting on Canvas
Signed and titled by the artist
92cm x 62cm
Stephen Campbell - Stimmung in a Stimmung is a stunning oil painting by the Northern artist. This painting amongst many other things is a self-portrait, the hand is Stephens and the reflection in the marble is the artist too. Stimmung is a German descriptive word that can best be described as atmospheric although has no direct English translation, much like the word Kitsch. The term was used in Wassily Kandinsky's book "Concerning the Spiritual in Art". An interesting thing about this painting is that the background beyond his hand is actually the painting so you can see the hand yet again, when he painted this canvas he held the Marble up in front of the painting and therefore got multiple images of the same view as the painting progressed.
