Remain in Balance by Steven Harrington
In this book, Harrington attempts to shed light on the universal struggle of staying balanced in a Life that is continually changing without our consent. Together with words by Elena Harrington, Steven’s series of Totem drawings started merely as pencil sketches that he began doing during his down time at his home in LA. Playing with the idea of the Linear, both vertical and horizontal, he recognized that his "balance drawings" and the objects that they were comprised of revealed a merge between his personal and professional life, that these Totem Poles, similar to what they have historically done for centuries, told a story. Here Steven’s first release for Nieves also functions as a catalogue of sorts for his first solo artshow August 2012 in Los Angeles California.
Cited as leading a contemporary Californian psychedelic-pop aesthetic, the Los Angeles-based artist and designer Steven Harrington is best known for his hazy hued, iconic style that encourages a two way conversation between the artist and viewer.
Elena Harrington, former Editor for DASH Literary Journal and creative writer, finds depth of words and their meaning in the clear and concise. Elena resides in Long Beach, California, where she seeks inspiration in the eclectic lifestyle creating wire wrapped, antique, and asymmetrical designed Jewelry.
