Stev’nn Hall is a Ontario-based artist, someone who loves to mix up his mediums a little, bringing together art and photography to create immersive multimedia landscapes. These creations pay homage to some of the world’s best impressionist paintings.
His work blurs the borders between photography and painting. Through his process of staining, scratching and embellishing the image with sharp brushstrokes and raw color, Hall’s transformation of these scenes is beguiling. A new world appears to be blooming before our eyes.
The Romantics, as does Hall, contemplate nature, with all its potential for the sublime. Or better stated, The Sublime. In its original context, the word and idea commanded stature. It was the opportunity for revelation – for an exalted sense of our place amidst the chaos of an unknowable universe through a communion with the ethereal grandeur of Nature. The awesome beauty of the world could act as a catharsis, an ecstatic release into pure sensation.
