Obsessions into Dreams
By Steven Leal
June 7th – April 8th 2018
Obsessions into Dreams is Steven Leal’s first solo show in NYC. Featuring two separate and quite different series of paintings from his career, the show presents a shift from an earlier exploration of the color, energy and ethos of horse racing, to his more recent experimentation with abstraction.
Born on the Isle of Wight, Steven is a self-taught artist who is best known for his ever-evolving sets of painting series. He has been most influenced by the work of Mondrian, de Kooning, Turner, and Pollock. Each of his paintings are reworked several times to develop depth, contrast and new meaning. Steven experiments with color, texture and medium to create works that are unique unto themselves while maintaining a balanced visual aesthetic.
Steven continues to experiment with new techniques as his work evolves while maintaining a slight yet recognizable continuity throughout each series.
