For artist, Steven Brent, the quality of the picture is the only thing that matters. Brent, who is known for his abstraction, likes to go into the studio and mix up a colour and throw it onto the canvas with any tool that appeals to him at the time. He surrounds himself with the canvas from three sides, like a cave. As he builds ripples, and mounds of thickened paint, he watches it slide down the sculpted surface in its own free-flowing pattern. And sometimes, he’ll get a big paint mitten and grab about a quart of thick paint in one mitt-full and drag the gloppy mixture down across the surface, just catching the very tops of the mounds and frozen paint strokes.

When it comes to acrylic abstract painting, Brent feels it is a very young and relatively undeveloped style in the history of art, and he is very proud to be part of this community of artists. The New New Painters have just barely scratched the surface of possibilities. As the world embraces a higher level of spiritual understanding, quality abstract art will become more important to individuals searching for inner meaning.
 
Aside from abstract, Brent has worked in pastels and created expressionist landscapes and self-portraits. However, he feels that abstract painting is the most challenging and fulfilling work he has done. Brent believes that if more people were to see painting, and abstract painting in particular, for what it is, it would help them understand and appreciate it better.
 
 
 
 
Steven Brent's work can be seen at The Museum of New, beginning on April 8th until May 13th at the exhibition of the New New Painters.
