Stephen Sollins works primarily by altering found materials, applying various mediums and methods to direct a viewer’s attention. Themes in his work center around the possibility of communication within the domestic arena. He sometimes describes this as “the space between people” or alternately as “lyrical non-communication and the poetry of silence”.
