An American artist based out of New York and Moscow, Stephen j Shanabrook will present new works at Orel Art UK which examine the disturbing space between painful and sweet, death and beauty. One of the primary themes will be the exploration of addiction, the way its soft seductive whisper turns into the heaviness of an everyday fight. In a poetical and tangible way, Shanabrook will explore the side effects of urgent social phenomena – addiction to prescription drugs, to religion and even to one’s own heavy memories. Working with a discomforting yet visually stunning combination of materials, Shanabrook forces the viewer into the dialog with their own unconsciousness.
