The exhibition Equal and Opposite has several themes that present twinning as a metaphor for the collision of spirit, thought and body, but also of digital and physical realities. Broadly speaking each painting has a series of relationships that is a reflection on our physical self as half-awake to our subconscious spirit and the layered realities that produce our stories around us.


Steve Forster was born in Boston, MA, and grew up in central Florida. He received his MFA in Painting from the New York Academy of Art and also attended the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, where he met his wife, Rebecca. Since 2014 Steve has been Co-Director, along with his wife Rebecca, of the Long Island Academy of Fine Art (LIAFA) in Glen Cove, NY. He currently teaches painting at LIAFA and NYAA. He blends digital painting and a love of traditional media to create unique contemporary portrait stories. His paintings are regularly exhibited in solo and group shows nationally. Steve and Rebecca have three kids, Elijah, Evie, and William.
