Stephen Morath

Stephen Morath's popularity has evolved from his colorful narrative paintings of the Southwest. At first glance his art may appear to be a simplistic, cartoon-like landscape, but upon closer examination the viewer finds a complex storyline.

“I love the Southwest with its Spanish towns, Indian Pueblos, sparkling deserts of southern Arizona and the beaches of the desert sea...the neon honky-tonk strips, weird outrageously colored topography and tourist traps in between”.

In recent years this artist has enjoyed painting outdoor still lifes containing brightly colored flowers and unusually shaped oversized fruits and vegetables. He also enjoys painting the Southwestern desert with its native plants, birds and animal life using a personal vision which is uniquely that of Stephen Morath.
