John Maxwell Steele



John's work contains fleeting observations from the everyday. 'I seek to suggest and invoke feelings, rather than describe.'

The diffusing of the image producing a ambiguity, embedded into the layering of history. The works are almost autobiographical in the sense that, they are directed by experience, but they intuitively develop a life of their own.

The physical activity of painting allows the potential of both materials and the inherently experimental processes to play an evolutionary role. The layers of paint both convey and reveal time, with the beneath being of equal importance to the surface.
