Painter Stephen B. MacInnis lives and works in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, where he was also born and raised.
If you want to see more photos of Steven’s work space, he posts a ‘Daily Studio Photo’ on his blog:
I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures.
DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...
Thanks for putting up these images of my space! Looking at them I realize how much I enjoy having all my stuff around me when I work, and if I ever cleaned the place up I’d never be able to find stuff again. I enjoy your blog, and look forward to reading more.
