The work of Jeremy Steffen is a reflection of humanity through a combination of abstraction and realism. The models in his paintings are generally close acquaintances to Jeremy, and it is important to him that he captures that connection. Through the gaze and the manipulation of color and medium you can see his intentions. When looking over one of Jeremy’s portraits and looking deep into the subjects eyes, you feel as if you’ve known this person intimately and are transported into their world.
It is a great display of humanity, nature, and the relationship they have with painting.
