June 21–July 11, 1986
An exhibition of screen prints and etchings by local artist, David Steele, will be at the ARTSPEAK gallery, Kootenay School of Writing, from June 21 to July 11, 1986.
The prints included in the exhibition are examples of Steele’s ability to unite the formal concerns of printmaking with challenging and paradoxical content. Influenced by Absurdist literature and theatre, and by films such as Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange, Steele creates double-edged images that are both frightening and humorous.
While subject matter is important to Steele, the possibilites of experimentation within the printmaking mediums, and the formal concerns such as space, texture and colour, play a significant role in his work.
