TIMOTHY URIAH STEELE

Talking with artist Timothy Uriah Steele about form, function, formality, color & concept makes for a great conversation. Many of us work depth into our compositions and utilize perception of perspective. Timothy builds his depth and perspective into the physical art itself. Each of his paintings are living, breathing, formative beasts.

“My art utilizes the perceptual ambiguity and increased dimensional flexibility of contemporary objects to graph new perceptions onto the way that we encounter everyday objects. The increased dimensional fluidity of objects and their fields under the forces of commodification can be called dimensional ambiguity. Dimensional ambiguity is the support for all the art that I create. It guides and structures the four primary principles of my art. These four principles are perceptual instability, spatial projection, genealogy, and after effects.”
