Steve works incorporates scenes and images from some of the movies within the horror genre that have had a personal and profound resonance in my consciousness. In most instances he appropriate periphery details and establishing shots, as well as the more melodramatic imagery, rendering them detached from their context, yet retaining the atmosphere and mood of the original source. He uses these moments to express underlying themes such as loneliness, alienation and fear of the unknown. Many of the images Steve chose to work with speak to him of the isolation and desperation experienced when our physical, mental and spiritual well-being is eroded by both external and internal sources: our environment, our contact with other human beings and our own lives and mortality.
