This is what we made with Stephen between June and September.
As Paul Huxley says in the introduction to the catalogue “Artists sometimes reach a point in their lives when they must attempt a great work ….. that sums up their experience of the world from where they stand at that moment”. Well, here it is and, even though he would not say it for himself, it is magnificent.
