Set in unconventional situations, Steven Rhude employs familiar coastal icons such as the maritime dory and lighthouse, to elbow his way into the viewers mental space. Once there, these objects seem isolated by the long shadow of urbanism, suggesting casualties of coastal life. Although based on real places, Rhude considers the settings in his paintings as fictitious - intended to evoke a cultural or political perspective. Aided by his use of realism and the modernist canon, Rhude's imagery can leave one wondering what the protagonist's strengths really are, and whether the object viewed has more than justutilitarian characteristics. Along with humour, a narrative is present in Rhude's work, and questions remain in the viewers mind like the residue of a ghostly presence.” - from the dj.
