Circleculture Gallery presents “Acquired”by Olivia Steele. Conceptual artist, Olivia Steele (1985) uses neon lighting to charge spaces with ironic and spiritual meaning. A native of Nashville, Tennessee and resident of London and Berlin, Steele’ s work ranges from small to large installations that employ the traditional commercial medium of neon glass to make intimate statements and to question modern culture. Steele relishes the idea of contrast and contradiction, and toys with our innate preconceptions. The juxtaposition of the neon statement and the environment it is placed in, challenges conventional semiotics and evokes a wide range of interpretations.
