Stephen practices an art which is as old as the hills, and yet makes it seem brand new. It is about the inestimable value of communication as well as the means of communication itself. It slows down language so that we can dwell on it and in it, but also accelerates its passage into our heads and imaginations.
POET LAUREATE, ANDREW MOTION
Raw’s unique achievement is making unexpected, compelling harmonies between the thing said and the saying.
MICHAEL SCHMIDT FRSL
The message is deeply important, highly personal, and, in many instances, political, too.
What Stephen has done is something distinct and original in itself.
