"My acceptance of participation in the landfill art project upon being presented the opportunity was a non issue. The initiative fits seamlessly into my work of late which focuses primarily on spending time, finding beauty, and bringing forth to the viewer the simple and fantastic world around us that we primarily over look and / or take for granted."Phil Stevens
