Steven Leyden Cochrane (b. 1984, Tampa, Florida) is multidisciplinary visual artist, writer, and educator currently based in Winnipeg. Though committed to conceptual and process-based methodologies, Cochrane works across a broad range of media to produce works that critically and poetically investigate inconsistencies of subjective experience, memory, and place, juxtaposing discrete works to create multi-layered, multivalent environments. He holds a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and an MFA in studio art from the University of Windsor. He has held teaching positions at the University of Windsor and the University of Manitoba. His work has been featured in exhibitions across Canada and in the United States as well as national publications including Border Crossings Magazine, Contemporary Verse 2, and C Magazine. His critical writing has appeared in FUSE, Canadian Dimension, and Uptown Magazine (Winnipeg). He contributes weekly exhibition reviews to the Winnipeg Free Press and tri-weekly reviews for Akimbo.ca.
