“A Path Between Two Continents” is a collection of Stephen Towns’s work unearthing stories from America’s history in order to provide the artist a means to reconcile its past. Adopting religious iconography and motifs, the artist uses painting, quilting, and mixed media works to illuminate various narratives from the Middle Passage and American’s history of slavery. Rather than create a monument of pain, the artist chooses to create a monument of resilience.

Born in Charleston, South Carolina, mixed-media artist Stephen Towns is currently based in Baltimore, Maryland where his breakthrough exhibition, Rumination and a Reckoning, opened to rave reviews in March 2018 at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Towns primarily works in oil, acrylic, and fiber, drawing visual inspiration from Medieval altarpieces, Impressionist paintings and wax cloth prints. His work is rooted in his upbringing in the Deep South and responds to “issues plaguing African American culture such as loss of ancestral roots, slavery, class, education, skin tone and religion” with a desire to “create beauty from the hardships in life.”
