"Steven Graham's exhibition, "Jesus Christ Abstracts," Consisted of 16 paintings, 15 of them abstracts surrounding one figurative painting of Christ.The schism he wishes to create is both the schism between the figurative and the abstract and the schism of religion in the secular world. These paintings are different from his abstraction conceptually in that they are not non representational but in the Christ figure become a loosely rendered representation of the stations of the cross. The differences in style between the figure he described as "Edwardian Storytelling" and tha abstractions play up the differences and similarities between the styles."

"Smaller this time, the paintings are composed on unstretched canvas and are renditions of the spaces Graham inhabits and the people he lives with. Expressionistic in style, these emotional works show the artist's interaction with the people and places that compose his life. When asked about style grham describes the pieces as "depressionistic"."
