Torso and limbs, movement and thrust, Eric Stephenson’s sculptures
unfold origami like into human forms filling the space, and then they
seem caught, suddenly frozen like dancers in an action photograph.
Some figures seem to physically unfold, while others seem to emerge
organically, like emergence 11 or torus, from an older form, shedding
the remnants of an industrial past and its language, as they morph
into lifelike figures. They are a strong presence with a quality of humanness
