“Look but don’t touch… touch but don’t taste…taste but don’t swallow ” -Devils Advocate
Steve’s work walks hand in hand with raw human emotion, nurturing human emotions and guiding people to think about their own life situations. A lot of steve’s paintings are confrontational and designed to be so. His sculptures are designed to make you think of your current position in the reality of the present moment. The quote above taken from the film / novel Devils Advocate, highlights the inquisitive naivety of the human nature, a theme that runs visibly throughout Steve’s work.
The work within the exhibition is a collective of Steve’s most popular pieces from 2010-2011.
