Steve Tobin Summary

Steve Tobin: Mind Over Matter by David Houston

Exhibited around the world yet rarely seen together, Steve Tobin s site-specific massive sculptures and select key smaller works and installations are chronicled within a comprehensive selection of 150 images. This comprehensive monograph draws parallels between themes from nature that underpin his body of work, from the interplay of chaos and order to that of growth and decay, establishing his art and practice firmly within the tradition of contemporary monumental art. Tracing the development of his nearly thirty-year practice and featured work is an original text by Phoebe Hoban, author of the best-selling biography Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art. A foreword by art curator David Houston establishes Tobin within the tradition of contemporary monumental sculptors.
