Through visual geometry, musical compositions, order & randomness, Stephen Boocks creates underlying structures & grids using straightedges & templates. Hand drawn elements are incorporated to soften hard edges with the goal of inviting the viewer in to an intimate dialogue of line, pattern & hue. Each piece is assigned a system of rules followed arbitrarily to develop a composition. His process aims to create an interesting counterpoint of elements playing off one another like instruments or musical sounds. Many of his graphic notations are later developed into musical compositions. Stephen titles each piece referencing lyrics of songs he admires. Stephen attended the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Old Dominion University.
