Stev’nn Hall: Creative Destruction

Stev’nn Hall’s solo exhibition, Creative Destruction, at Toronto’s Muse Gallery showcases his photo-based landscape paintings.  The title reflects the characteristic of bodies of water – eroding and changing – and embraces his abstract cloud explosions. Creative Destruction is also a metaphor for how he creates the artwork – by “destroying” and distressing the photos with sandpaper, water, or paint.  (Above: Tomorrow Never Knows, mixed media on dibond, 42″ x 42″)

He is a graduate of Concordia University, where he studied film, painting and photography, and an award-winning television producer at CTV. An award-winning filmmaker, he has also worked as the director of a non-profit film co-op, a director of indie music videos and as an international award-winning television promo producer. Hall now dedicates himself full-time to painting.

The exhibition at  Muse Gallery runs Nov 22 – Dec 13, 2012
