Stephen Magsig

American painter Stephen Magsig portrays typical, American landscapes often showing the close proximity of urban industry and nature. Some of the scenes in his artwork are ‘ordinary’ scenes but show the beauty in the banal.

I would like to portray the banal landscape and how it has been disrupted by the presence of a plane crash and the destruction that it causes.  It’s useful for me to look at Magsig’s work- inspiration for composition and use of forms of the landscape.
