Carving Clarity

A SOLO EXHIBITION BY STEVEN KEAN OPENING NOVEMBER 30TH, 2017

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

A Pennsylvania native residing on the North Shore of Oahu since 2008, STEVEN KEAN is an artist working primarily in the woodcut method of relief printmaking. Woodcut is a technique where the artist carves into a block of wood, leaving raised areas to receive ink. The inked block is then printed on paper. 

   Kean’s recent work is a collection of wave studies utilizing this technique. It is driven by a passion for the process and a love affair with the ocean. The relief prints that define Kean’s work render what may have only previously been an abstract feeling for an ocean-minded person. ‘I hope to elicit a reaction in those who have felt that symbiotic connection with the ocean, and at the same time provide access to those who maybe have not had that experience.’

 

  The World Cup of Surfing is the second jewel of the  Vans Triple Crown of Surfing . Held at Sunset Beach, the big wave event is steeped in tradition. The infamously long and shifty wave is notorious for being unruly and complex. Only a few dedicated surfers have mastered the lineup and the powerful waves that pour down the point.  A good result means breaking in to the  WSL World Tour  or just hanging on to their World Tour seed.
