Steven's artistic vision centers around the revelation of overlooked or unseen experiential moments hidden within everyday life surrounding us. There is so much “inherent design and beauty” to be discovered in the interactions of the line, form and spaces tucked away in the details.
Some insight into Steven Mikel
Throughout my life I have always found myself seeing things differently than other people. When others would be noticing the mountain grandeur, I would be fascinated with how the drops of dew clung to the pine needles, or how the pine cones and needles gathered in abstract clumps on the ground pushed together by the mountain breezes. I am drawn to a unique vantage point, such as extreme high or low angles, which accentuate the perspective of the subject and I am captured by the “juxtaposition” of textures and objects.
Human beings have been given an incredible gift... the ability to “see” beyond the physical nature of “sight”. However, in everyday life it is easy to focus on the “Big Picture” and miss many of the little details that hold all the experiences together. My vision is to bring those hidden moments to the surface, and help all of us truly connect with the “Big Pictures” in a deeper, more emotional way. For instance...Yes, the mountain grandeur was picturesque, but the dew and pine needle compositions were there as well, and were part of the experience, even if subconsciously.
