Steven Beckly is a Chinese-Canadian photographic artist residing in Tkaronto/Toronto. Cultivating a visual language of light and colour, he explores the continuum of intimacy by creating multidimensional images, objects, and environments. Playful, touching, and evocative, Beckly’s photographic artworks encompass bodily abstraction, material manipulation, and site-responsive installations. Considering the social dynamics between the individual and the collective, Beckly’s practice questions the potential of art to inspire intimacy between ourselves and others, with the natural world and beyond.
