You can recognize Eric Stephenson’s trademark metal sculptures as they embody symmetry of nature and the human form. Mastering the abstraction of the human anatomy, Eric’s figures seem caught frozen like dancers in a photograph. You begin to lose yourself in the structures and slowly the life like features shed their industrial past.

His work comes to life as he explains their ability to “mingle with others and begin the subtle conversations that only the subconscious can hear”

Stephenson is the president of Chicago Sculpture International and has hosted several lectures, panels and workshops throughout the years.

His sculptures can be found in over 15 collections throughout Texas, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. Since his arrival in Chicago in 2001, Stephenson’s work has been shown at the Chicago and the Hyndman Gallery, Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City, Indiana Elmhurst Museum, the Koehnline Museum, the Frederick Meijer Sculpture Garden and the Krasl Biennial Sculpture Invitational, among others.

He continues to show nationally and his work is a part of a number of public and private collections. Most recently, his sculpture “Within Reach” won the First Biennial Miller Sculpture Exhibition Purchase Prize.You can recognize Eric Stephenson’s trademark metal sculptures as they embody symmetry of nature and the human form.
