Steven Sorman: outside in, inside out

Steven Sorman, without really knowing, 2011
Steven Sorman has been exhibiting his work since the early 1970s. His earliest pieces are minimalistic prints dominated by simple, geographic forms and muted colors. By the '90s, his collages had become full of swooping organic curves, dense with color and contrast. His most recent work, which is the focus of his show at the Atrium Gallery, features the return to the more stark compositions of his youth. His 2011 woodcut and etching, without really knowing, is a swirl of black whorls that imply a churning body of water. A single capital "o" of bronze powder hovers against this unnamed sea, an exclamation of surprise made solid.
