Zane York "Stewards"
Zane York's Stewards will contemplate our longing as humans to relate to the beasts and bugs and to share some form of experience with them, or, at the very least, feel like we have. At times, this desire is anthropomorphic, at other times it may be stereotypical, but sometimes it can feel more significant. Zane's paintings investigate the nuances of certain moments, raising a dichotomy between the temporal and the mystical. Mr. York states: "our interactions are limitless, and as stewards we find ourselves by minding the beasts."
Brooklyn-based painter, Zane York, was born in Fremont, Nebraska in 1978.
