Relational Fabric in Space & Other Works for the Dark

February 5 – May 23, 2010

Steve Steele’s Relational Fabric in Space and other works for the Dark, is comprised of three mixed media installations. Relational Fabric in Space includes 333 objects, bulbs, platforms, and wood panels. The artist describes it as being about the infinite number of relations existing between objects, words, meanings, the natural world, and man as intelligent spectator. Relationships can be obvious or subtle, based on color, form, or meaning. Objects, both ready made and constructed can be as diverse as foods, musical instruments, children, animals, religious imagery, etc. The visual puzzle is constructed so that relationships are to be discovered in objects that reside in spaces next to each other vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Special lighting in the darkened environment enhances the illusion of an invisible fabric floating in space and makes for a mysterious and stunning effect.
