Representing galleries


SHIRLEY STEELE creates art to explore ideas about the human mind and its offspring, technology and language. Steele uses a variable combination of computer animations that she writes, prints taken from the animations, and traditional painting media.

In her mixed-media paintings, gestural paint strokes and computer animation combine to explore a central tension of the information age, the human/machine relationship. Paint and programming join in a playful and reflective dialogue between hand and computer, between the irrational and the rational.

Steele's artistic practice is informed by her passion for science/technology and its intersection with contemporary art.  A graduate of both the University of Texas at Dallas (Ph.D., Brain & Language) and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (painting and printmaking), she makes art by combining technological skills with traditional arts technique.
