Is contrast the greatest teacher? Artist Olivia Steele seems to think so, and her lyrical neon sculptures certainly do bring one into a moment of enlightenment. Steele is a conceptual artist working to question modern culture and our innate perceptions. By placing provocative neon statements in contradictory spaces she begins a dialogue that gets her viewers questioning and reflecting on the world around them . Steele also juxtaposes her neon statements with iconic imagery to further jar her viewers beyond the everyday. The wide range of interpretation her work presents is endless, a refreshing change from the overbearing gallery plaque.
