Steye Felix – Goodbye to my imaginary friends

At the occasion of the opening of the exhibition Goodbye to my imaginary friends a catalogue and textbook have been launched (edition 30 signed and numbered). Designed by Jinhee Kwon. Also digital published on ISSUU.

As a tight-rope walker Steye Felix creates compositions charged with tension by combining form and color in such a way that it feels ever so slightly off balance. At first glance his paintings appear calm and poised, but a small stripe of pink protruding through two shades of mossy jades sends you teetering of the brink – almost. Well-placed brushstrokes are sanded down and entangled with new ones. His works often include no more than three or four different hues, but the borders of his canvases reveal a spectrum of advances made until the desired contrasts were achieved.
