Steve Stratis, Award-Winning Designer and Entrepreneur, brings the blue with his Best of Show sculptures, ‘Liquescent’ and ‘Tides of Blu’


Abstract art has the remarkable ability to evoke emotions and transcend traditional boundaries of representation. In the recent Blue Art Exhibition held at the prestigious Artist Space Gallery, two captivating pieces by the talented artist / entrepreneur Steve Stratis emerged as the Best of Show winners. Titled 'Liquescent' and 'Tides of Blu,' these abstract blue artworks not only captivated the viewers but also pushed the boundaries of artistic expression. Let's delve into the mesmerizing world of Steve Stratis' winning creations.

The Essence of 'Liquescent'

'Liquescent' is a visually striking masterpiece that effortlessly captures the essence of fluidity and movement associated with smelting. Smelting is the process by which hard metals are melted into liquid form. The artwork is dominated by various shades of blue and centers around a smelted puddle, creating a captivating effect on the viewers. Stratis' deft sculpting and expert use of fluid VFX and texture give the piece a unique quality, as if the sculpture is in the same physical space as the viewer’s eyes.  

The intricate layers of blue in 'Liquescent' seem to dance across the canvas, forming captivating patterns that draw the viewer deeper into the artwork. The use of light and shadow adds depth and dimension to the composition, creating a sense of mystery and intrigue. Stratis' deliberate ambiguity allows viewers to interpret the piece in their own unique way, engaging them on a personal and emotional level.

'Tides of Blu': A Symphony of Serenity

'Tides of Blu' conveys both the tranquility and power of ocean tides. The sculpture takes the ebb and flow of ocean waves and freezes it in time, for viewers to have the opportunity to appreciate one of nature’s beautiful elements. Stratis expertly uses contrasting tones, sculpting, and fluid VFX to create a sense of movement and rhythm. The composition is carefully balanced, with each element contributing to the overall harmony of the piece.

The interplay of light and dark in 'Tides of Blu' adds a dynamic quality to the artwork, accentuating the textures and giving the impression of shimmering water. As viewers engage with the piece, they can almost feel the cool breeze and hear the gentle lapping of waves on a distant shore. Stratis' meticulous attention to detail invites contemplation, encouraging viewers to immerse themselves fully in the artwork and experience a moment of tranquility.
