Dave Stevenson has created sculpture at studios in California, Montana, New York and the Caribbean. He chose these spots for scenic inspiration and ready access to snowboarding, surfing, rock & ice climbing, swimming, and biking. The fluid, arcing contours of Stevensonís sculptures express the rhythm and dynamics of these pursuits: speed, form and balance.
Current projects include Acrobat, a monumental bronze sculpture chosen for NYCís Art in the Parks 2016 exhibition series. Last year Stevenson won the honor of creating a commemorative brooch to celebrate the commissioning of the Navyís new amphibious assault ship, the U.S.S. America/LHA6. His dynamic design was presented by the officers of the ship to the vesselís sponsor, Lynne Pace. In 2012, the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance awarded Stevenson a Creative Grant to support his RAPTOR Rising bronze triptych project.
Corporate collections include the New York City headquarters of Pfizer Inc. and the office of film director James Cameron. The stainless steel wall-relief Stevenson created for Lightstorm Entertainment is a 3-D interpretation of Cameronís company logo.
His sculptures have appeared in films produced by Lightstorm Entertainment, Hallmark Hall of Fame Productions and Garden of Eden Productions. In 2006 Stevenson created a commemorative bracelet celebrating former president Bill Clintonís 60th birthday. The 18 karat, white gold design was auctioned at the William J. Clinton Foundation fundraiser held at the Museum of Natural History.
Multi-media collaborations include the sub-Rosa performance with Seattl-based choreographer Cheronne Wong. Sub-Rosa had its New York premiere in May of 2009 at the Joyce Theater in SoHo. In 2007, Stevenson created the sterling silver Inspiration bracelet series to raise money for Parkinsonís Disease research. Over $20,000 has been donated to Parkinsonís Unity Walk thus far. Stevensonís artwork has been featured on the VH1 Classic, Fuse, ABC and Fine Living television networks.
Publications include: The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Harperís Bazaar, Town & Country, People, Seventeen, St. Barthís Weekly,The Santa Cruz Sentinel, The Bozeman Chronicle and The Philadelphia Inquirer. Ensemble Lifestyles, an award winning travel magazine, featured an extensive profile of the artist in its 2013 fall issue, highlighting his
annual winter exhibition at Galerie Les Artisans in St-Barth.
A graduate of The College of William and Mary, Stevenson is represented by Ramey Fine Art in Palm Desert, CA, Les Artisans in Saint-Barthťlemy, F.W.I., and Old Main Gallery in Bozeman, MT.
The artist currently splits his time between an apartment/design studio in Manhattan and a larger living/work space in the Catskills.
