A Short Bio:

Steven Kean is an artist working primarily in the woodcut method of relief printmaking.  Woodcut is a technique where the artist carves into a block of wood, leaving raised areas to receive ink.  The inked block is then printed on paper.  Kean’s recent work is a collection of wave studies utilizing this technique.  It is driven by a passion for the process and a love affair with the ocean.  The woodcut prints render what may have only previously been an abstract feeling for an ocean-minded person.  ‘I hope to elicit a reaction in those who have felt that symbiotic connection with the ocean, and at the same time provide access to those who maybe have not had that experience.’
