Kind of World | Stephen Pleban

April 11 - May 6

“My paintings tangle with the tradition of landscape painting, imagined contexts, concerns about climate change, and the deep connections humans have with nature. I explore the uncertainty of our altered relationship with the natural world and in dream-like depictions, examine the imaginative interplay between light and dark, night and day, and our desire to discover new ways of sensing, learning and being. The images are other-worldly but grounded in behaviours, gestures and relationships that enable connection.

Through layers of paint, oil and wax, the images take force through the physical act of painting. ¬†An essential element of my practice is the exploration of formal elements that celebrate a deep engagement with the physical deployment of paint. I draw upon images that nurture my practice, culled from the internet, music, personal photos, films, and documentaries. In an approach that resembles collage, I source and juxtapose images of people and animals in natural environments sometimes seeking to understand, sometimes satisfied with just being there.” Stephen Pleban 2023
