Stephen’s images capture the energy of journeys and cities. He is attracted by light, reflections and the movement and energy of the crowd. The defining characteristic of his paintings is an enjoyment of colour.
The crowd may be large or small – sometimes the focus is on a couple or an isolated figure – but always they prompt the viewer to wonder who they might be, and what are their various destinations. There is a sense of paths momentarily crossing before the groups disperse forever.
