Dedicated To da Vinci
The hallmarks of Steele’s art are in full display in Dedicated to da Vinci where art is deconstructed to the very basic of tools. From eight school crayons (manufactured by none other than “Benny Steele Co.”) come the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. Steele’s luminescent lighting, acquired through layers of glazing, extends two dimensions into the illusion of three. His wry sense of humor reminds us that art is not only beautiful, it can be fun.
