The Winner

Karl Stevens uses the graphic novel to dissect the line between the worlds of high and low art. While working as a museum guard he contemplates the plight of his aesthetic choices, and how they have affected his life thus far. Where is his place as an artist? How has his world changed since he met his wife and muse Alex? Has he become boring since he quit drinking? Painted visions of autobiographical reality swing into experiments with fantasy and science fiction.

Karl's work is featured in the Gardner Museum's exhibition Botticelli: Heroines and Heroes, on view from February 14th-May 19th, 2019.
