Impaired Perceptions
Mason Murer Fine Art
Featuring work by: Brian Charles Steel

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Nov 3 2012

Atlanta based artist Brian Charles Steel created a series of black and white photographic portraits that deal with socially constructed identity and perceptions commonly had of physically impaired people. Through this body of work Steel explores the relationship between an assumed normality and the prescribed notions that are often had of others. Steel uses direct eye contact and tenebrism to challenge the viewer to see each person as an individual. His work challenges notions from the work of Diane Arbus, and refutes the misguided concept that some people are “freaks.” He uses chiaroscuro created by Rembrandt lighting to show each person’s beauty in a traditional portrait style to emphasize that physical ability should not determine how one fits into society.
