Unruly Gallery and Klerkx Art Agency are proud to present ‘Subtraction’, Steve More’s first solo show in The Netherlands.
More started out as a graffiti artist in the eighties which explains his understanding of environment and used materials. Since 2005 he has concentrated on studio based abstract work, as well as collaborating on large-scale environmental projects with the collective Agents of Change. Having spent 7 years in New Zealand, he recently returned to Europe, where he now lives and works between London and Edinburgh.
As stated on his website: "Steve More is influenced by our shift in attitude towards time and place in the digital age. He observes a world where the hyper real has become the norm and a lifetime's work can be viewed, consumed and discarded in seconds. To explore the relationship between man and computer he incorporates elements from both the physical and digital world." This unique combination of abstract, street, digital and the natural world makes him a significant pioneer in the crossover between the physical and digital.
For his show at Unruly Steve More will present new works as part of his ongoing ‘Syntax Series’ and a selection of his latest concrete works.
Also open on Saturday 24 August and Sunday 25 August 12:00 to 18:00.
We are unruly. We like to look at life from different angles and turn things around. There is no truth. There is no untruth. Only everything in between. We're untying the old perspective.
And we create. Art. The ultimate comment on life and its endless perspectives.
But. We don't like the art world. We don't like the schisms, the categories, the feuds, the fried air that's being presented in galleries and museums like some tasty amuse gueule. There is a self proclaimed elite that’s holding art hostage.
Until Unruly. We're taking no prisoners. No government handouts either. Forget words like graffiti, street art and counter culture. Look at the individual artists. There are no words. There are no images. Only everything in between.
Look us in the face, see our smile. Share our love for what we love. Be unafraid. Be unruly.
