Guy Stevens

In his work Guy Stevens tries to resist the recognisable, and yet within each finished sculpture there always seems to be some part of an unintended object or creature that has crept into the abstraction. Using a playful and organic approach to sculpting, Guy often will not know what the result of his carving will be before he starts, allowing echoes of forms to move in and out of focus in the stone as he works. Odd forms and unusual shapes then begin to appear with striking originality. Yet in the process of carving, Guy gives his work the same sense of voyage and emotion he himself feels with its creation. Each sculpture, although once a heavy, solid stone, is given a new aesthetic without disturbing its inherent beauty, nature and energy. 

Guy completed a Fine Art degree at Chelsea School of Art in 1994. His work developed through multimedia projects using video, photography, live performance and installation as he explored the notion of self. In 2001, he taught himself to carve stone and has been carving ever since. Guy is an Associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, has undertaken several public art commissions and has works in private collections internationally.
