Stephen Deffet

Stephen Deffet builds paintings out of abandoned moments and jilted spirits. Deffet follows his natural tendency as a voyeur to salvage images and videos lost by others. Sourced from the internet and thrift stores, strangers’ vacations, celebrations, and holidays get adopted as commodified memories. Ripped out of their original times and places, these images are revived as paintings so the artist can introduce them to the collective consciousness.
