Steve Brudniak

Steve Brudniak’s exhibition Ontological Catastrophe explores his oeuvre from the last 24 years. Given that his multimedia assemblages can take months or even years to complete, the artist qualifies these as his latest body of work. His work combines a variety of unconventional materials, such as meteorites, lasers, and bismuth, as well as moving parts and lights to explore the ever-shifting psychological realities that this century has brought into question.

These pieces aim to share glimpses of what we are not aware of through ordinary channels: realms influenced by dreams, meditation, hypnosis, therapy, psychedelics, the subconscious, science, metaphysics, mysticism, technology, theology, spirituality, and ontology. These are multimedia assemblages, refined from extraordinary materials and objects; enhanced with phenomenal elements: previous works have gone into space, contain the oldest known life, produce lightning, employ human blood etc. Such novelties assist in skirting the edge of five senses, to flirt with unique perceptions.
