A whimsical and larger than life acrylic painting on canvas titled "A Sunday in the Park" by Stephen Goodfellow. Signed on the bottom right and dated 1988. Part of the artist's "Forgeries" series, Goodfellow is making an homage to Georges Seurat's "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte." The technique is described as "Primary Micropointillism." A witty and conversation evoking painting, especially for art history enthusiasts. Dimensions: 68w x 1.75d x 44h (framed). In very good vintage condition.
Stephen Goodfellow (1953- ) is an English born turned Detroit celebrated artist. In 1975 Goodfellow came to Wayne State University in Detroit to pursue his Post graduate degree. He graduated from Wayne State University in 1977 an M.F.A. having concentrated on painting and printmaking. During his studies at Wayne State University, He discovered that it was possible to transfer his primary color printing technique to conventional surfaces. This technique is called Primary Micropointillism. Micropointillism uses only the primary colors (yellow, red and blue,) which are applied to the surface in small spatters of color. By using different intensities of these three colors one can produce an almost limitless palate of colors. Several examples of these works have been acquired by the Detroit Institute of Art and further work was recently in the "Interventions" Exhibition at the DIA in 1995. This institution owns three of Goodfellow's paintings. Even before the World Wide Web, Stephen demonstrated that the principles of Micropointillism are perfectly suited for the electronic medium; that the manipulation of primary colors make for a seamless transition between the reflective and the image. By 1999, Goodfellow had launched into Macropointillism a technique similar to Micropointillism, but executed with sizable dabs of primary color on large canvases. Today his work can be found in various private and public institutions.
