Steve Frey’s work is inspired by human evolution and the human life cycle. The continuous cutting, which has no beginning and no end, reflects our own life pattern, whereby our basic makeup is inherited and passed on through generations. Our own individual traits can be recognised generations apart, and these are reflected in Steve’s sculptures.
Over the years his work has evolved, encapsulating a unique essence and individuality. Steve daydreams in images, and then refining them before ‘going to the wheels’. These visions are stimulated by his observations on, natural symmetry, sensuality, femininity, masculinity, fertility and the conception of life.
The simple but heavy forms are like a blank canvas on which the carving can be used to maximum effect, creating optical mystery and thought provoking visions. Each piece is unique and yet they are all connected.
