About Steven Rudin:
Steven Rudin is an artist and psychiatrist who creates hand-cut paper collages with an emphasis on nostalgia and optimism. Rudin uses perspective to create a unique participant observer experience. His nearly realistic, almost seamless collage tableaux are a metaphor for the dynamic nature of memory and identity. Rudin received his BA in Modern Languages and Linguistics from Cornell University, his M.D. from Yeshiva University, and his training in psychiatry from Columbia University. During his 20 years at Columbia University, he lectured extensively, trained hundreds of clinicians in cognitive behavioral techniques, and authored numerous book chapters. In mid-2017, Rudin stepped away from clinical work to dedicate himself to a full-time studio art practice. He now uses visual storytelling to share information about psychological resilience. A solo installation of his work was just held in Miami, in conjunction with the Miami Design District.
