Stephen Elijah Hardway

I reflect the very act of conscious understanding of the world around me by cutting explicit knowledge into little tiny pieces and reassembling them through layered juxtaposition into a visual metaphor of implicit understanding to communicate a more mystical robust relationship with reality. When I am not making works of fine art I experiment with modified VHS analog synthesizers and cameras producing visuals for funk bands.

Biography

I am a collage artist. I work in two mediums currently, VHS tapes and paper. I was recently acknowledge by Tamarack: The Best of WV in my paper craft as an official artisian. My work is often described as the manifestation of metaphor. I create hyperactive interconnected mind opening work. I play with concepts of left and right brain communication.
