Artist Statement   
Chain Stories

I became preoccupied with chains a few years ago as a metaphor for constraint and restriction.  In Chain StoriesI I continue to regard them in a broader sense, not just in terms of confinement, but also as a means of attachment, support, adornment… connections made.  In most works the chain motif is obvious.   A few pieces refer to psychological/emotional/non visible connections.  The links are implied, but surely as strong.   

Through portraiture and narrative I am looking at relationships and states of being, lessons learned and their impact on the self.   Images are bound in frames or strung out as wall jewelry, or a combination of the two.  Chain swags create dialogs about separation and attachment, or become wall necklaces with their own tales to tell.  Free standing vessels, sewn and sutured, allow glimpses of interior, insular selves, safe and protected in hard shells.  Placement and pedestals complete the story.   

I hope to provoke or inspire the viewer to examine their own inner self and the chains in their life.   Enjoy!

Steven Wright - Space, Time & Love: The 3 Dimensions of Life Exhibition
Jul
17
to Aug 23

Steven Wright - Space, Time & Love: The 3 Dimensions of Life Exhibition

Space, Time and Love:  The 3 Dimensions of Life”
Paintings and music by Steven Wright

Exhibition - July 17 – August 23  2019
Location:
John H. Milde Gallery, Goldmark Cultural Center

Reception & Musical Performance by the artist - date & time TBD

Songs inspired by space, time & love. The evolution of physics is synchronous with the evolution of visual art and music.  Physics is about understanding space and time.   Visual Arts reflect our depiction of space in both two and three dimensions. Music quantizes time, dividing sound into notes and measures.

Throughout our history, themes and ideas converged, driven by the passion for discovery and expression. The paintings and music in this show (including songs by James Taylor, Leslie Bricusse, Paul Anka, Michel Legrand) represent a conversation about TIME, the dynamic evolution of physics.
-Steven Wright
