“I first saw Alec Stevens’ work at his BA degree show at Brighton University in 2011. As a contemporary craft curator, I was impressed with the level of skill in woodcarving that was evident in his work, but also the conceptual thinking that lay behind it. I particularly remember his carving of a folded handkerchief.
There is always a great volume of work on display in an undergraduate degree show, and artists’ work can get lost in this mass; sometimes there are moments when a piece suddenly stands out in its own space, has its own resonance and a discovery is made. Seeing Alec Stevens’ work for the first time was nothing like this. I looked at his display area and walked on. It was only when I realised that the image of the carved handkerchief had remained with me that I knew I needed to return and take more time to consider his work.”
