Rogers Center for the Arts

McCoy Gallery

Steven Careau

Icons and Instruments, wall sculpture

August 29 - October 7, 2016

Reception and gallery talk:

    Thursday, September 15, 3:00-5:00 pm


           Steven Careau’s sculptures  serve as devices or tools that explore their wall territories as if they were claiming ownership. Made of hardwoods and metal, each piece measures its allotted space while suggesting alternative options of size and configuration, implying a capacity for adjustment to tasks and to the environment in which tasks are performed These are sculptures of both cognitive and physical reach.

 Steven Careau, C4               

           In his Artist Statement Careau offers this sense of intention:  

          Seen as both object and act, the work brings to mind exotic specimens, rare examples, caught and held, preserved unchanging. Removed from dirt, gravity, moisture, and strain, it leads the viewer from its material reality to the realm of the ideal, to thought and idea. This dynamic recurs throughout my work and is a defining principle of my artistic and intellectual identity.
