I am seeking to make Squiggleism a new branch of Impressionism. Squiggleism is an impressionistic dash of unblended color with a curb or twist applied side by side in a staggered flowing movement. Similar to pointillism in application but longer, flowing strokes. For the spiritual aspect, each squiggle represents a unit of the Divine, or kind of Divine essence. If the Great Creator spoke out of Nothingness, it was sound and vibration spreading outward. When slowing, physical elements begin to be created.
Compared to Van Gogh's strokes: if Van Gogh's strokes were piano musical notes, they would be "ding, ding, ding, ding." Compared to Stefan's strokes, it would be the same note but with the foot on the pedal, making the "ding" a "DiiiNNNNggggg," longer and undulating.
The Squiggleism strokes be like musical notes with the various colors seen as tone. Stefan often called his brush, 'my baton."
2001 Stefan created a painting at Cape Fear Studios in Fayetteville, North Carolina called "The Glory Tree." It was during the finishing of this painting did Stefan realize his mission and name of style of Squiggleism. The painting was sold to Cumberland Country Mental Health.
Stefan also calls Squiggleism as a kind of Living Spirit Art...with each stroke part of the Great Creator's living spirit that is in everything that exists. A similar belief held by most Native Americans.
