André Stead’s approach to the figurative narrative focuses on perception and the human experience. His work has an ethereal quality that hints at a deeper connection between the physical and non-physical aspects of the human condition. The figures, although rooted in naturalism, are often simplified and distorted to enhance the intent of the artwork and shift the focus on a particular quality. The sculptures are expressions of real human experiences that most people go through and remind us of the great diversity of circumstances we face and how those experiences shape us.
André Stead’s installation artworks are a spectacular display of colour and form combining to evoke an uplifting feeling of movement in any space. His mantra is form and flow, and his unique installation artworks are internationally sought after by those who dare to be bold and expressive. His works are sensitive and elegant with a focus on complimenting site-specific interiors in tone and composition. The artworks are made from highly polished stainless steel and plexiglass that interact with light in a very special way that seems almost magical.
