Steven Gregory South African, b. 1952

Gregory is a sculptor with a wicked sense of humour who relishes the idea of being up to no good and is often found looking at potential subjects with a mischievous glint in his eye. Perhaps as a result of his early training, stone carving features largely in Steven Gregory’s sculpture, although he has also developed ideas in bronze and other media. His intention is to make work that cannot be disregarded and sometimes results in harrowing images of the human condition. Since 2002, the central theme to Gregory’s work features human bones and skulls as a celebration of both life and death.
