Superposition

Steve Sangapore is a contemporary oil painter based in Boston, MA. Using vastly different stylistic approaches with various series’, his work can be described as an amalgamation of realism, surrealism and abstraction with thematic focuses on the human condition.

“Displaying a disciplined technique and great attention to detail, the style of my work blurs the lines between contemporary realism, surrealism and pure abstraction – often in a single painting. Through these modes of technical execution, a deep exploration into aspects of the human condition resonate throughout the work by mode of scientific archetypes and philosophical elements.”

Known unknowns

“The unknown is central to my work. Unknown suggests a lack of knowledge or understanding, which inherently calls for a journey to a state of known. My art addresses the greatest and most profound “unknowns” of life: the nature of reality, experience, consciousness and the pursuit of it’s mysteries through science and the humanities.”

In this exclusive interview, Steve Sangapore discusses his work, which he dubs ‘Sci-Surrealism’, and its focus on the “known unknowns.”
