Timothy Uriah Steele: Hexes, Divinations and Concussions

September 15 – October 29, 2016

In “Hexes, Divinations and Concussions”, Timothy Uriah Steele reveals the fetish. The fetish embodies the spirit of the aggressor, who is then hung by the maker. It is seen floating where the dark water meets the horizon, pierced by flaming arrows, that also resemble matchsticks. These scenes reflect a desire to slay one’s demons; the persons and experiences that haunt the maker. Religious undertones drift amidst the mine field of the mental landscape. Real or imagined threats, permeate the work. You find yourself unknowingly living your whole life in a world of disaster. Suddenly the veil is lifted.

Hexes: Casting an ideational net to affect an inter-subjective perception of reality

Divinations: Reading the signs of chaos to draw forth the narratives concealed by the future

Concussions: Trauma in time and memory; erased moments or received damage

“The thaw of disassociation”
