The works of Brussels based artist Stan Van Steendam (1985) can be best understood through the prism of a new materialism, characteristic to one of the lines of contemporary art practice today. The physicality of the art object in the work of Van Steendam, may this be through the medium of sculpture, drawing, painting or a book bares a strong tie to nature. Nature for Van Steendam is a not only a conceptual precondition for his practice, but also a source of material, may this material be plaster, jute, pigment, wood, earth or paint. Regardless of the final medium, the same matter is worked, shaped and transformed into layered blocks of colour, shapes, movements and textures, final form of which, suggest a revised, yet somehow present nature of their origin.

With the rock as a central subject/object of the artist’s recent works, Van Steendam questions our revised and somehow fleeting relation to the natural, evoking visual memories of what the natural once was and what within the domain of the artificial, it might become.
