Steven Gregory's body of work combines a variety of materials, that includes electronic parts, semi–precious stones and bronze. Gregory manages to create works with undertones of emotional profundity and humour. For instance his use of human remains is undoubtedly morbid and reflective on mortality, however by beading these skulls in precious jewels Gregory exposes his no-nonsense approach to materials and illustrates his wicked sense of humour. Gregory draws on his traditional stonemason skills to create works that ostensibly appear neo-classical and conventionally formal, but upon further investigation pop with unusual juxtapositions of our natural and manmade world and hang somewhere between abstract and figurative sculpture.
