Aniquah Stevenson's pieces are fabricated from a range of textures and materials such as smooth glass, slippery, tactile clay, grass and seed pods, stones and simple found objects. These are brought together as part of intimate and intuitively assembled sculptures and compositions. These spaces and creations focus on growth, the unknown, and small gestures emphasising impermanence and imperfections. Stevenson's work concerns objects, materiality, composition and colour that filter through into wide empty spaces and emotional landscapes.
