This week's Winner of 'Artist of the week' is Steven Emmanuel!

Congratulations Steven!

Steven has recently graduated with an MA in Communication Art & Design at the Royal College of Art.

Steven enjoys creating work that 'congratulates its own stupidity and dwells upon its consideration and its own perceived importance. Within this work labour and meditation are often perversely married to one another in the process of capturing everything and nothing.'

'I engage with art itself as a subject matter to attempt to 
understand the physical and philosophical ingredients of contemporary  
  art. I often think of art as an autopoietic machine that self-creates and  
continually perpetuates. The artist being the protagonist and operator of this  
machine, taking things apart and putting them back together again in a new way, 
re-mediating reality and re-configuring it to sustain itself.'

'Rorscach's rug'

'Death and taxes'


'Do not touch'

'Sorting the hundreds from the thousands'

'Inside the white cube'

'Seven folds'

'Stand up Protest'

'Each piece of work that I make speaks to the last and attempts to look forward and question something new to discuss with the next. It creates an introspective cycle that thrives upon the questioning of its self and the development of my own logic and my own language.'
