Steve McPherson is a British artist and lecturer whose practice includes installation, sculpture, objects, book works, collections, assemblage, collage, experimental drawing, photography, video and sound.
McPherson asks questions and explores concepts surrounding systems of knowledge and information and at the same time challenges his own and others' models of belief. His practice involves a search for understanding via maps, mapping, collecting, collating and documenting. This is often manifested in the collecting and categorising of objects.
In 2000 McPherson was awarded Bursary membership from the Royal Society of British Sculptors. In 2004 his artist books/diary journals were included in the ‘Contemporary Artists’ Books 1960-2004′ Public Lecture at Tate Modern. His works have also been featured in journals and publications including ‘Creating Artist Books’ (A & C Black), ‘Succour’, Journal of New Fiction & Poetry, 'Aesthetica' magazine, 'Daily Constitutional' (USA), 'Alternatives Journal' (Canada), and 'Pushing Out The Boat' magazine, Scotland. He continues to show in galleries and art fairs in Europe and the USA.
