Stephen Ormandy | Solo Exhibition in Paris

July 13, 2019

Stephen Ormandy presented an impressive solo exhibition?titled Les formes sont des couleurs, at Galerie Bessieres in Paris. 

'By moving beyond a diametrical opposition between geometric and lyrical abstraction, Stephen Ormandy handles abstraction in a refreshing manner. The artist did not only pay constant attention to form and color, but also places value on emotional contact with people viewing his work. His approach represents an ideal equilibrium in painting today.'
