STEVEN NEDERVEEN studied fine art at Medicine Hat College and went on to receive a Bachelor of Design from the University of Alberta in 1995. The following year he moved to Vancouver (1996-2000) where Steven practiced meditation and found that this experience combined with the beauty of the landscape greatly contributed to his growth as a person and an artist. It was these moments that lead Steven to use painting to draw connections between our natural environment and aspects of spirituality. By blurring the lines between photography and painting, he develops a magical realism that inspires us to see the world with new eyes. By using distressing and aging the work he creates the sense of past and present, of struggle and transformation. A glass-like layer of resin coats each painting enhancing the clarity of the image and reflecting the viewer into the work.
