KYLE STEWART

Memories are often distorted by emotion. When Kyle Stewart began painting his memories of nature, the details became transformed by the passage of time, affected by sentiment and his new urban environment. Living in downtown Toronto, the shapes and colours found on the graffiti covered walls quickly merged with thoughts of a past rural life. What was once a close relationship became a distant and broken conversation. The figures that now appear alongside these organic forms show the same disconnect with nature that the artist feels when painting landscapes from far removed memories. They struggle to find the words to speak or to make a firm connection; just slightly out of reach, like a fading dream.

Porcelain

The body is the shell of the soul. My work is primarily concerned with the human body.
However, I consider my images not as classic acts or erotic photographs, even if these genres resonate well.
I do not want to show the beauty as such. Rather, I’m for the person as a holistic being: body and spirit in unity.
With the representation of nudity in the picture I describe not only the body, but can occur especially mind and feeling world closer.
This express, manages the dancers under my models in a particular manner. Their bodies testify to the steady pursuit of beauty, grace, performance and perfection.

Just beautiful.

Woven Prints

This is such a wonderful concept, I love everything about it.

"These images are the result of physically weaving together two photographic prints of the same subject. They are an attempt to bridge dignified, direct portraits with a sort of abstraction that allows their subjects to hide within themselves, and the photographs to be distinctly physical objects. In hiding some things, we reveal others."
