Meet the Artist

Steven Wise

I believe that the search for beauty is a political act.  My work forces people to stop, perhaps step out of conflict and, for a moment, engage in the essential human experience of wonder.  It is my hope that people viewing my paintings will take time to slow down, to look more closely, and to find themselves at a place outside the chaos of daily life.  These pictures offer spaces that bring light, grace, and mercy to those who choose to gaze deeply into art works.

Biography
