The world of “The Mask” is the culmination of Stephen Jon’s experience of visual and physical theatre, allied with a life long exploration of personal and cultural mythologies. His work investigates the interface between art and craft, between art and therapy and between the collaborative and individual processes of creativity. He draws on a wide range of skills including clay sculpture, painting and drawing as well as vocal and movement techniques.
