Painter, a first-generation Abstract Expressionist who mounted a one-man show at the age of 21. Biomorphic forms, with a resemblance to the work of Mark Rothko and William Baziotes, inhabited his early canvases. More recently, Stamos has committed further to abstraction by activating his brushstroke and by modulating the tonalities of his paintings.
