Steven Nederveen’s work deals with the passage of time, a theme stemming from his practice of meditation. Moments of peaceful clarity lead the artist to draw connections between our natural environment and aspects of spirituality through an artistic process that combines painting and photography. By collapsing mediums, Nederveen develops a magical realism that insists on new perspectives on the landscape genre. Through painterly manipulations of photography, he creates the sense of a competing past and present; of struggle and transformation.
Steven Nederveen's work is featured internationally in galleries, art fairs and magazines, and is part of private and public collections including Air Canada, the House of Armani, and the Canadian embassy in Iceland. He studied fine art at Medicine Hat College and went on to receive a Bachelor of Design from the University of Alberta in 1995. His studio is currently based in Toronto.
