Art by Steve Sangapore: LA vs NY
For our LA vs NY Art Exhibit
My philosophy on art is very much parallel to my philosophy on life. The greatest beauty is the dynamism within the endeavor. Our philosophies, education, experiences and interests are always changing, keeping the intrigue high the will for progress higher. As an artist, the chase is often more rewarding than the final conception of the objective. I create because I enjoy the act of creating, not just the final result.
My work is hard-edged, geometrically illustrative renditions of themes relating to my observations of reality and experience. My objective within the work is the capturing of socially objective scientific themes and personal, visceral reflection. Visually, my art is a gathering of matter strongly focusing on the nature and physics of reality and themes in my own personal philosophies. Each canvas bears a tangible and detailed capturing of profound moments of focus through arrangement, depth and texture.
My passion for science and investigative will for understanding reality, truth and the symmetries in life are all aspects of my being in which I feel may be the most worthy subject of my visual expression. Within my process, I abstractly and implicitly convey ideas and implications of my own subjectivity. Sex, mystery, growth of knowledge and deep philosophical emotions are themes in which I break down into visual shapes with texture and form. Through visual means, I attempt to express humanities’ deepest questions and marry together some of the most profound scientific theories humans’ have ever devised.
Like phrases in music, my work’s leitmotif and creative spirit will forever remain a watermark in the web of our never ending, dynamic, and collective conscious manifestation that is existence itself…
