I wanted this portrait to visually represent the concepts and complexity of Stephen’s show. Like a Rorschach test, each viewer may see it a little differently. Something may be funny on face value, and the more you know, the more background information you can draw on, the deeper the joke. And often you see that this comedy is no laughing matter at all.

The mirror image, like a Rorschach pattern, was created to represent the two Stehpens (the formidable opponents, the good and evil. Even this duality is not perfectly clear) which Stephen is in color, which in black and white? Maybe there’s good and bad in both sides? Within the “godly” triangle, illuminated by a heavenly light, is the unblinking eye of truth. Or is it truthiness?
