There are few sports left that are undeniably popular yet underrepresented in the media realm. One of these is volleyball, a recurring subject in the work of California-based artist Jansson Stegner. Expressive and exaggerated, Stegner paints power into the players he portrays. Whether represented on court or in the locker room, these volleyballers with their elongated torsos, strong limbs, and confident gazes are ready to leap off the canvas and spike on you. It is with these playful works that Stegner delivers an ace for the art world.
