Internationally known for his matchstick-men series, Stiller’s inspiration is derived from materials having a specific purpose or meaning and from diverse interests such as Buddhism and travel.

La galerie Mark Hachem présente les peintures à l’huile de l’artiste anglais Stephen Peirce. Quand l’inanimé s'agrège en un tout vivant, organique, qui nous semble familier mais que nous ne pouvons pourtant identifier… Au delà d’une technique parfaite, d’une maitrise exceptionnelle de la couleur et de la lumière, les peintures de Peirce montrent un univers absolument unique. Dans la tradition des maitres du passé, avec une facture hyperréalisme - quasi 3D - Stephen Peirce peint un futur dont on ne veut pas, nous prévient de sa probable fatalité tout en imaginant son étrange beauté. Virtuose et déroutant. **** The gallery Mark Hachem presents the oil paintings of the English artist Stephen Peirce. Contemplating Peirce's paintings is like a vision of the inanimate growing into a living, organic whole, which seems familiar to us but which we can not yet identify... Beyond a perfect technique, an exceptional mastery of color and light, the paintings of Peirce show an absolutely unique universe. In the tradition of the masters of the past, with a hyperrealistic - almost 3D - touch, Stephen Peirce paints a future without humanity, warns us of its probable fatality and imagines its strange beauty. Virtuoso and enigmatic.
