Art practice

Steve Bandoma employs various materials that have specific qualities and characteristics.
Batting, rope, raffia, rubber and found objects are all but some of the materials employed in his work. He sews raffia and batting, installs forms in space, performs and sometimes does video art. All this seen together, Steve Bandoma begins to literally fuse, connect and mix media, while he conceptually surfaces the socio-political, the socio-cultural and the socio-economic climates of not locally but globally. The semi-transparency of batting allows the artist to be both absent and present while remaining unidentified.
All these concerns are sometimes conveyed in a humorous manner.
