Regular price $ 18

by Steven Harrington

Remain In Balance attempts to shed light on the universal struggle of staying balanced in a Life that is continually changing without our consent. Together, with words by Elena Harrington, Steven’s series of Totem drawings, which are carefully constructed out of objects of necessity and leisure, create a timeless visual story remarking on the complicated, ever impossible balance we all strive to maintain. Feelings that by most are internalized and kept private are personified through Steven’s sequence of drawings, giving the viewer a chance to reflect on their own lives, while simultaneously realizing that we all encounter similar struggles.

What started merely as pencil sketches that Steven began doing during his down time at his home in Los Angeles, became a series of drawings. Playing with the idea of the Linear, both vertical and horizontal, he recognized that his "balance drawings" and the objects that they were comprised of revealed a merge between his personal and professional life. A hodgepodge of fun, silly, and serious objects combined together created a reflection on his own desire to maintain balance; it was then that he recognized that these Totem Poles, similar to what they have historically done for centuries, told a story.
