Steven Harrington | Wavy Days

October 15 2015 . 08:48pm

Featuring the work of Steven Harrington (stevenharrington.com)

“Wavy Days,” my first solo show in Paris since 2009 is now on view at Colette, Paris. The title reflects my ongoing relationship with anxiety:

“It seems that all my life I’ve dealt with anxiety. Like many folks nowadays, I’m no stranger to feelings of worry, stress, apprehension, and even fear. Sometimes the feelings are constant and then sometimes I can go weeks or months without experiencing an anxious moment. But, in taking an honest look at my feelings, I’ve discovered that most of my anxiety is really of my own making—a pointless waste of emotional energy over things in the world I simply cannot control. Sometimes life just happens.

Through these paintings, I have found a way to deal with my own anxiety. To me, the paintings have become a way of making fun of these annoying moments and worrisome voices that I have in my head. I’ve purposely chosen to paint these emotions as playful cartoons in the hope of shedding humor on and giving perspective to the subjects. Please note the titles. I hope you enjoy.”

MOCAtv X Steven Harrington

May 23 2014 . 07:16pm

Steven Harrington is an artist and designer based in Los Angeles. Like the psychedelic, cartoonish art of Anthony Ausgang, Harrington’s drawings and designs are broadly appealing, having been exhibited in art galleries and incorporated into apparel, furniture and skateboards. Curating for MOCAtv the self-described “image maker” selects videos that speak to his playful aesthetic, including a rotoscoped animation of Cab Calloway and Garfield’s Halloween Adventure.

“REMAIN IN BALANCE”
A Lighting project by Steven Harrington.
Published by Case Studyo.
About The Collaboration
With his latest Case Studyo collaboration, California artist Steven Harrington takes his
exploration of balance to a whole new level. Working with wood for the first time ever,
Harrington has turned the totem-like structures of his Remain in Balance series into three
whimsical, anthropomorphic lamps. Each one represents the harmony we seek in our
daily lives, an inspired and inspiring reminder of the importance of equanimity.
Harrington’s Remain in Balance lamps are hand carved and hand painted with the utmost
care; the hand-splattered linen drum lamp shade adds a bright punch of color to the
natural, organic feel of the sculpture. Each lamp is a functional work of art that
illuminates, literally and figuratively.

About Steven Harrington
Cited as the leader of a contemporary Californian psychedelic-pop aesthetic, Los
Angeles–based artist and designer Steven Harrington is best known for his bright, iconic
style that encourages a two-way conversation between the artist and viewer. There’s a
timeless quality to his playful yet contemplative work, which is inspired by California’s
mystique, vastly diverse landscape, and thriving mix of cultures. Embracing a
multimedia approach, Harrington’s portfolio includes large-scale installations made of
plaster and stone, handscreened prints, limited-edition books, skateboards, and
sculptures. Alongside his personal work, Harrington co-founded both the acclaimed
design agency National Forest and pop-art brand “You&I.” He has exhibited artwork in
Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Barcelona, Tokyo, San Francisco, Chicago,
Philadelphia, Montreal, Melbourne, and Dallas.
About Case Studyo
CASE STUYDO is a publisher and producer of artworks by a broad range of
contemporary artists. Because CASE STUYDO is inspired by the changing boundaries
of the art world, different forms of creative expression, and the abolishment of
predefined rules, their catalog isn’t limited to a certain style or visual language.
The CASE STUDYO artworks are the result of a unique collaboration between the
studio and the artist. Existing artwork is not reproduced, rather each piece is a new
creation, an interaction between CASE STUDYO and the artist which creates its own
story—a case study—resulting in a unique object, released in limited editions. Our
collaborations result in fine artworks, furniture, or other functional objects that strive to
push boundaries a bit further while sharing today’s most interesting art. CASE STUDYO
doesn’t operate out of a gallery; they work directly with artists and collaborate with their
representing galleries. Available works can be acquired through their contact page.
