Matte Stephens notes this of himself: "I am a 40 year old painter that lives in Peterborough NH. I love Mid 20th century industrial and graphic design like the work of Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson/Irving Harper and fine artists of the same era like Ben Shahn and Paul Klee."
As longtime Museum readers know, I'm a Klee fan. I saw Klee's love for cats' characters and his playful portrayals of thoughts here. The colorful Tinkertoy of Lillian's mind also calls up the textiles of Ray Eames, abstract yet clearly created with a delighted human hand.
