Stephen Pon's work, while constantly evolving, stands out at first glance. From different series of gondolas and ships, to the sculptures of his characters imbued with expression, the artist reveals unique creations that take their source and combine the ancient and the contemporary, including their myths and symbolisms arousing the metaphor. "From my very first works to my most recent, I express a vision of movement, of the journey of life. Like a winding stream, fate takes us to unsuspected places in a dreamlike universe where the man and the symbols which surround him have all their importance. Sailing on the seas of fate, man is making his way. Affecting doubt, lyricism, dreams and the movement of water, I am inspired and try to stage both nature and culture”.
