Curtain to reproduce a quality of interior light characteristic of central Florida at sunset after a thunderstorm in summer (2011)Steven Leyden Cochraneis a multidisciplinary visual artist from Tampa, Florida. Working in a broad range of media and exhibition strategies, he seeks to problematize received understandings of art objects as repositories of meaning and vehicles for personal expression. His research interests include Conceptual Art practice, constructions of artistic identity, theory of mind, problems of narrativity, vernacular design, fan art, home décor, pre-modern painting technique, stained glass, Minimal sculpture, and Mariah Carey. He earned a BFA in painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2006 and in 2009 completed his MFA in studio arts at the University of Windsor. He is currently based in Winnipeg.
