Current and Past Exhibitions

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.'

Artists Statement - 3 days before leaving for her solo show @ Mary Place: I'm feeling pretty good. I like going to exhibitions, going to Sydney, feels good....I like painting; make me busy. It's good to do painting all the time; work every morning, every morning, every day. Sometimes Patrick (Mung Mung) and his wife (Betty Carrington) come painting, sometime Nancy (Nodea). Sometimes Nora (Nagarra) come for painting. Some people do painting in the community. Like old Madigan (Thomas). Sometimes Evelyn (Malgil). When he finish, he bring painting back. I'm always busy - finish work, the painting, go home. Go to council meeting, go to court (as an elder). I got to make money to get tucker for my grandchildren. I still think about Aunty (Queenie McKenzie, who taught her to paint). When I do paintings. She tell me about stories.
