Fluid Beauty: Reflections and Expressions | Steve Cleff | Solo Exhibit
Opening Reception Saturday April 10th 2010

Amberella Gallery
@ the piazza
1050 N Hancock St #62
Philadelphia PA 19123

Steve Cleff | Artist’s Statement
My work is about the fluid beauty of the balance between chaos and order, of the transition from thought to reality, of seeing things in a new light.

The show is comprised of two series of paintings and a collection of various pieces…
Reflections |this series is inspired by the album Lateralus, by the band Tool, as well as the influences on that album of alchemy, philosophy, and personal evolution. It’s about looking inward to connect with oneself – to be able to connect to the outer world.

Expressions |this series is a response to reading John Berger’s “Ways of Seeing” in art school. Berger states that the “ideal” spectator is always assumed to be male and the image of the woman is designed to flatter him. I never liked that idea. This is my attempt at making paintings about who women are. These images are meant not to be literal portraits of the models, but elemental ideas representing the ethereal inner beauty of confident, feminine women. The work exists to create an experience where the women who view my art recognize their own innate strength and beauty in what they see.

Steve Cleff | Artist’s Bio
Steve Cleff was born in Philly and loves it so much he moved back after he and his wife Tricia lived in paradise (aka Hawaii). Steve has a BFA from Syracuse and synesthesia which means he sees color when he hears sounds. He co-directs the Philly branch of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-art School with Tricia and Steve looks forward to teaching their young son Patrick how to draw outside the lines
