Having worked within Performance, Theatre, Acting, Photography, Playwriting, Screenwriting, Construction, Interior & Furniture Design, Personal Assisting, Art, Sculpture, and Cinema throughout his career, Stephen Barnett has learned that these multiple disciplinary experiences help produce better storytelling.
He recently graduated with a Master's in Gender, Sexuality, and Cinema Theory from the CUNY Graduate Center shortly after a CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies in Theatre and Cinema production.
Mr. Barnett has produced an exploritory filmography of 20 independent films over 20 years.
His mission is to make a difference through empathy, fortitude, and imagination.
He spends his personal time producing
2&3-dimensional works of art.
In the vernacular of "Art-Speak,"
these works are described as:
Mixed-Media Structural Assemblages,
but he refers to them as:
which are comprised from his SLR/Darkroom-printed images, architectural gestures of wood, found objects, and sometimes a touch of color to highlight a point, accentuate a line, suggest a mood ...
The purpose and pleasure he seeks to achieve is a symbiotic balance of beauty from a thought, moment, or story through images, forms, and found objects shamed and discarded as "ugly" so as to instill the inherent aesthetics of pride rooted within collective-community.
