Artist Appreciation: Steven Allison




Steven: I am inspired by the human ability to connect. I don’t know if this is exclusive to us and not other animals but I believe it is what makes us special. We have this innate ability to empathize, sympathize or feel for literally anything. It doesn’t have to be physical, we even get invested in concepts,I explore this in my paintings. Focusing on spirituality, mysticism, sociology, and interpersonal dynamics as well as my own personal struggles. My work is modernist and representational, I like seeing the marks build up to make something. Using acrylic paint on either wood or canvas I make absurd or strange scenes mixed with personal symbols and well-known symbols to make paintings that are familiar but coded. I had a 10-year depression growing up, from 12 to 22 I was a suicidal mess of a person. I hated myself and never tried to grow or figure out who I am or how I can fit into the world.
