Director

Steven Arnold

He is an artist who exercises his birthright, which is the expression of his own particularity of vision. A vision thrust forward by the agitation deep beneath the recesses of his chthonic cave. The cave ceiling lined with broken bits of reflecting devices in which we see new angles of men, of women, of glamour, angels, beauty, sex, fabrication, androgyny and exultation. – Ellen Burstyn – A favorite model and friend Ellen Burstyn, Steven had said « She saved me repeatedly with her encouragement and support; she showed me Rome, we wept together at the Vatican. »
