Evan Steenson is an emerging Canadian conceptual artist who works in digital

media. He is a member of the 1313 Gallery and lives and works in Toronto.


Avoiding formalism and representation, Evan’s compositions present us with a

renegotiation of the art-as-object versus art-as-image discourse. Often presented

in series, each individual composition becomes an integral component in the

larger concept. As such, these works pose new questions around what it means

to create and display a visual concept.

The visual presentation of Evan’ s concepts oscillates from the bright, utopian

forms of geometric abstraction to the meta-modern, reconfigured and

hypermodified forms of our post millennial culture.

Evan works with a variety of broadly accessible design software, appropriating

and repurposing commercial tools as creative media. In doing so, his

compositions point to the literal and conceptual boundaries of “new” media, as

well as its inherent possibilities.

My body of work to date invites a review, reinterpretation, and re-questioning

of the axioms of visual abstraction through the most important social lens of the

twenty-first century – the computer monitor.
