STEVEN BREAUX: SOLO Large Paintings
I look at graphs and diagrams as objects or things emerging from a world of ideas, almost as a pre-seed. To me they are representations of thought and visualization –cast-offs of minds heading toward other endeavors.
Weeds of the art world, of the image world, graphs and diagrams can be akin to weeds of an information world, highly useful and serving valuable functions in the overall ecology of information and visual-ness yet frequently passed over as being neither the most important aspect of the information process nor do they rank as members of the artistic, aesthetic class of imagery: Orphans in these lively worlds.
One of the things I am trying to do is to help them emerge into the realm of art. I am also investigating the processes that link the two worlds.
I treat these images as aesthetic objects, alive in their own existence, in an environment specially created, yet limited in scope. I draw them in their uniqueness as sentient beings in their own right without regard for their intended purpose.
