Stephen’s Burke's work explores the cultural divide between street and gallery. He produces photographic documentation of urban areas focusing on traces of anti-social behaviour, waste excess and utility elements.
He photographs the residue from graffiti removal, broken fencing, sprayed construction markings and stained mosaics found in public spaces. Stephen uses this ‘visual waste’ to build his own painterly language. Within the studio, he translates these documentations into a series of artworks.
