Steve Rosendale

I use the term 'Incidental' to describe my work, in that the use of film and found imagery is really secondary to the mood or feeling I am trying to convey. Film is simply a device that I manipulate to express the deeper, almost subconscious reasons for the choice of scene or figure.  The result is not unlike a film still but on transferring it to the canvas and manipulating various elements, the finished work will inevitably be filtered through the lens of my subconscious and imbued with the mannerisms of my personality. From my earliest days as an artist I began combining second hand imagery from television and magazines as source material for my work. I spend many hours observing, taking photographs, researching and sifting through hundreds of old ephemera...until I discover what I can only describe as the pictorial equivalent of the inner inspiration. Then I feel a great need to express that image or somehow frame it, capture it and aggrandise it. It is the marriage of an inner vision with an outer. The inner being abstract, blurred, floating with bleeding edges; the outer being concrete, tangible solid and present.
