About the artist: Born in the Rhondda, Stephen's work focuses upon the crumbling monuments of our past, the kaleidoscopic sprawl of modern urbanisation and sets them against the inexorable flow of returning nature. From hills and mountains which roll with the speed of a geological ocean, to the surging seas around, this land of legends is imbued with a spirit all of its own. His use of colour is derived from a condition known as synaesthesia. This condition enables Stephen to associate a building, a person or an entire landscape with a particular colour. This individualistic colour perception is the catalyst and driving force behind his work.
