Harrison Steinbuch's paintings are external expressions of internal emotions. With material in hand, and a catalogue of techniques at his disposal, the canvas becomes an arena upon which to act spontaneously. As actions layer upon actions, techniques pile upon techniques, each move sequentially effects the outcome of the composition. Each piece captures a unique moment in time, and blurs the boundaries between minimalism and maximalism.
Action Painting, is a performative painting series, that calls upon the audience to interact with him on the canvas. Participants are encouraged to throw paint, use their hands and feet, and express themselves spontaneously in the moment.
Wall Fragments, is a multimedia documentary series comprised of photographs of contemporary urban wall compositions and 3-dimentional wall reliefs. The series focuses on shape, line, color, texture, form, and reimagines the world as a series of fragments.
