STEVEN NEDERVEEN | Something In the Air
340 Dundas Street
September 9 - 23, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9th from 2-4 PM
We often say that there is “something in the air” when we feel a subtle change—something atmospheric, mysterious—acting on us in strange ways. For Steven Nederveen, the phrase is central to his most recent body of work, which explores the magic of the landscape as a similarly mysterious space, the experience of which is notorious for captivating—and eluding—artists. The “thing” in the air might be a bright stroke of paint, swipe of neon, or wash of pigment against a sea sky, but it is also a carefully placed screen between the onlooker and an unobstructed, picturesque view. Something in the Air is a thoughtful exploration of the age-old pair of natural beauty and its loss; it is both love letter, and lament.
