My new drawings in "Curiosity" show with great sculptor Bela Bacsi atAmerican Legacy Fine Arts

Thanks everyone, all my brothers-in-ART in particular, for joining us at our show opening yesterday and making it such a great night! 

What made this show so special to me though and all that work worth every bit, was that moment of seeing my finished drawings in their full assembly next to refined and striking forms of Bela's spectacular marbles. 

When I took this shot last night after we all had to leave finally i had a thought: "Contemporary" is not a style, "Contemporary"is a sensibility...

Steele: "Warrior", Sepia on archival paper mounted on oil on panel  15" x 19" 

"...The show features about 20 of his newest drawings on hand-made De Ponte paper and heavy-weigh Italian Fabriano paper, which appears to float in front of its frame. Designed by the artist, the mounting system complements a recurring theme in Steele's imagery these days: a dreamlike sense of floating, which he sees as a metaphor for the human spirit transcending the limitations of gravity, and thus, of mortality..."
