Opens 6pm on the 8th August. All are welcome to attend. The Everysomewherever Series is a series of miniature paintings created in Phnom Penh, Brisbane, Melbourne, Argentina and Broome which feed of Stephen's many years of Wanderlust. They are constructed from 25 years of travelling over 60 countries, usually not staying in one place for longer than 3 months. These small work s made from acrylic, cotton and wool thread are all gleaned from experiences on the road or sea with deliberate chaos and confusion in the work. In the words of the artist himself, 'Everywhere, somewhere or wherever holiday together in these tiny detours. Stars and beasts meander through the work to create small souvenirs from everywheresomewherever.'
