Jared Steffensen

Published July 9, 2009 by Graham


Jared Steffensen’s installations and sculptures address divisions between public and private space, examine organic and artificial environments, and imagine the natural world overlapping the domestic. While the aesthetic– hyperreal woodland forest scenes– could easily lend itself to caustic kitsch, it doesn’t. Against all odds, it’s adorable. Steffensen’s work reminds us that good art doesn’t have to be cynical or detached: we have permission to sincerely appreciate a cotton-ball cloud, a tropical beach occupying a suburban living room, or a pair of cowboy boots sprouting a redwood forest.
