Stuart is interested in understanding the relationship between lived experience

and creative activity. His practice of drawing whilst moving through the landscape, 

whether in a car or on foot, allows him to simultaneously become observer and

the observed: both subject and object of study. Furthermore, the embodied

experience of drawing in locomotion makes the artist acutely aware of the active

part that the environment can play within the creative process. Whilst living this

experience the artist, media and environment enter into a dynamic relationship

where the act of drawing becomes a spontaneous, improvised dance with the

world: the world in which and with which we live.
