East Gallery:


This exhibition features recent lithographs by Vancouver artist, Steven Nelson. His work is concerned with the popular digestion of culture, both the art historical and those products which touch everyday society. The prints follow in a progression, rather than a series. Stemming from a satirical/humanist view of ‘the follies of mankind’, they focus on the psyche and the public appropriation of Freudian labels.

Steven Nelson earned his B.F.A. at Wisconsin State University, followed by post graduate studies at New Mexico Highlands University, Las Vegas, New Mexico; Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Vancouver; and the University of Calgary. In the last two years, he has exhibited in Surrey, B.C., Calgary, Vancouver and Los Angeles.
