Comment
12年前カナダ滞在中に初めてスティーブンの作品を拝見した。誰もがあまりにも簡単に多用する写真製版の中でも彼の作品は非常に厳しい視点と構図を持っており、冬の凛とした空気の様な強い絵画空間がとても印象的だった。人一倍、版に拘る姿勢に裏打ちされた作品は常に深い考察と緊張感が存在する。

I saw Steven’s works for the first time 12 years ago when I was in Canada. Photoengraving works can be a cliché but his disciplined vision and composition make his works unique and impress viewers with its strong and dignified air. His deep attachment to printmaking technique are profoundly questioning and create a sense of tension.
