Steve Lopes’ interest in the tension between figure and landscape remains at the heart of the artist’s latest work. A woman crouches in front of an abandoned swing set; a barefoot man goes on his morning run; a lone lady meanders through a thicket of trees. Using his signature expressive brushstrokes and rich colour palette, Lopes breathes life into the stories of these figures, and the seaside town of Queenscliff in which they are at times depicted, presenting what is perhaps, his boldest, most confident body of work yet.

Steve Lopes is an Australian painter and printmaker, known predominantly for his figurative paintings and portraits. He has been a finalist in the Doug Moran Portrait Prize, Black Swan Prize and Percival Portrait Painting Prize. In 2018 Lopes was the recipient of the esteemed Gallipoli Art Prize. He has studied, worked and exhibited locally and internationally, with over 35 solo exhibitions across Australia, London and Hong Kong. Lopes’ work is held in the National

Rick Amor / Philip Davey

Mar 11 10:00 amMar 29 5:00 pm

Rick Amor and Philip Davey both share a love of plain-air painting; both artists take a bold approach to composition, and there is an obvious confidence in the technique of both artists. However, a closer inspection of their broad bodies of work invites a far more complex appraisal of their decades of drawings, paintings, ceramics and sculptures. The brooding and the urban prevail in Amor’s work, with pieces that are often characterised by a sense of tension and mystery; darkness and disquiet. Davey’s work on the other hand tends to be brighter; lighter; less introverted. In a carefully curated exhibition, Queenscliff Gallery brings together these two artists in a way that counterpoints their differences, whilst also celebrating their skill, finesse and friendship.
