FRESH FACES IN ART: ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
STEVE DEGROODT Steve DeGroodtâ€™s constructs are proprioceptive compositions performing a sense of locomotion which expound on physiologic feedback mechanisms; an antechamber of phantom memory relearning the visual system and its function. The formulation of his objects are naked to the eye without pretension, yet turn around consistent inconsistencies - leaving much to be discovered. Notated materials (scrap wood, torn fabric, envelopes, cardboard boxes, single thread, loose wiring, veil) act concurrently as conduits and cloaking devices, filaments and barricades. DeGroodt could orchestrate a world in reverse, by inventing artifacts which reverberate with shapes of presence and absence.
