Stephen West works in mid-Wales UK and in western France using principally drawing and sculpture. The figurative themes of recent series of works have been - the ash grove, a series of ash trees round the year in response to a threat from airborne spores; meetings of committees where a threatening dog disrupts a tense situation; people move through trapdoors and attic spaces and architecture under construction. All the works are a response to the material properties of the medium, whether charcoal, bronze, paint, wood etc.
