The Art of Ben Steele |
f ine art chameleon
The hallmarks of Steele’s art
are in full display in
Dedicat-
ed to da Vinci
where art is
deconstructed to the very
basic of tools. From eight
school crayons (manufac-
tured 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.
