Guy Stevens

Guy Stevens tries to resist the recognisable, and yet within each sculpture there always seems to be some part of an unintended object or creature that has crept into the abstraction. Guy often does not know what the result of his carving will be, allowing echoes of forms to move in and out of focus in the stone as he works. Guy experiments with finish and texture to give another dimension to his sculpture's character. 

"I love discovering and sourcing my material, it has taken me to people and places I would otherwise not have found or thought of visiting. I hope to give the viewer or discoverer of my work the same sense of voyage, process and emotion I have felt in its creation."

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.
