"It is Steve’s faith that calls him to be an artist. His work is an unending exploration of that faith and its relationship to his life, his culture and his community. To Steve, 'We are all living epistles, whether we want to be or not.' In Urban Epistles, a series of prints that was recently exhibited in the Grand Rapids Art Museum, he visually interprets the thirteen epistles of Paul, recontextualizing them within a contemporary, urban framework. His work becomes an 'open letter' to American culture calling them, 'to acknowledge their role within the fabric of the American family and to redress race, representation, and education with a new raiment woven of respect, truth and equality.'" —Excerpt from ZuCot Gallery
This exhibition features a large scale drawing, produced collaboratively with Gordon College art majors from October 20th to October 22nd.
