In his work, Stephen is interested in the way the surface evolves through a series of dissonant events, each layer is a counter-action which supersedes the previous action. Each line or mark becomes and forms a kind of logical or even illogical sequence dividing the space; the line traverses the surface as if searching for a route, often forming or reforming spatial relationships. Each line or mark operates independently (neither one is a clone of the other but a new species), any action is an approximation or a hesitation, groping and awkward without a beginning and an end. The events within the surface are uncertain and probing; this diffidence is important to the uniqueness of each work. The painting/drawing becomes a history of imperfections or spontaneous actions, which transforms the surface into a series of activities, corrections, stops and starts. Sometimes the surface suggests a landscape or an architectural space – this result is incidental; he is more interested in how the surface becomes a synthesis of many actions and in turn reveal a history or memory of past actions or events.
