“Of all the exhibitions I went to last year, this is my favorite. My words can’t capture the ethereal beauty of the work.” — John Megas
STILL THERE: WORKS BY KENNETH STEINBACH
On Display: September 8 – October 5th
We are proud to present a solo exhibit of work by Kenneth Steinbach, a local artist and art professor with a long history of variegated conceptualizations spanning multiple mediums and materials.
For this event, he will be displaying a new set of works in which repetitive ink drawings of ordinary objects are suspended between layers of resin. By layering 30-50 ink drawings of the same object between thin layers of resin, Steinbach is able to create eerie, ghost-like apparitions seemingly afloat but yet trapped in the plasma-like depths of the resin. The act of repeating and layering the images has the effect of transforming a simple line drawing of an ordinary object into a multi-dimensional phantasm that floats and flits as the viewer moves and interacts with the work.
Please come join us for the Opening Reception on Sept 8th from 6 pm to 9 pm. The physical depth of the layering and the resulting ocular illusions elicited can really only be appreciated by viewing these works in person!
Kenneth Steinbach is an art professor at Bethel University and a member of artist-owned Form + Content Gallery. He has exhibited work extensively across the country over the past 15 years. His work has both an exacting technical/sculptural aspect as well as a conceptual and cultural element.
