Steve Morrell was born just outside of New York City. He studied design at Long Island University, then moved into a career in advertising before returning to his original love. Mostly self-taught, Steve works mainly in oils, but also uses acrylics, spray paint, or whatever else he feels will help bring his work to life. Steve is currently enthralled with the human form, in his perspective the ultimate vehicle for expression, in all its infinite shape, shadow and color. With the human form there is a knowing, an obvious relatability that allows the viewer to read into every subtle gesture and nuance and extract meaning. His goal is to create an ethereal sense with his art, to disconnect from everyday societal constructions. His paintings mainly feature nudes. There is no clothing or other manmade items to remind the viewer of the world the subject comes from. Even gravity is in question.
