Abacuses of shimmering marbles strung in superimposed rows on a frame that becomes a painting, crossword puzzle grids covered here and there with brightly colored squares, metal ladders between the rungs of which are arranged plates of dichroic glass, stacks of paperback books set up against the wall showing only their monochrome edges, a film shot in India at the time of the festival of color, another one made in Rio showing the variegated exuberance of the Brazilian fans... In the only description of his works, the art of Stephen Dean is presented in the order of two essential characteristics: the color and the diversity of the practices. If he willingly declares that he is a painter, it is not only a simplification of language but the will to affirm that the idea of painting presides over the realization of each of his pieces.
