Painting Break by Steven Gee

Self-Published (2016)
52 Pages, 15 x 21 cm, Paperback, Edition of 100

Painting Break is the artist’s first self-published book, serving as a natural progression and framing device to his work and ideas. In many ways, the title is self-referential to his practice, as well as suggesting a break within Steven’s own developed language. Steven is interested in the ‘digestion’, or consumption of an image, within a process of framing – literal or conceptual. Images and text co-exist, either developing or disrupting a dialogue, stirring a concoction which either tastes bitter or sweet come the end of the book.
