Artist: Steve Lopes
Location: perth
1 - 28 MARCH, PERTH CITY. Official opening Sunday 13 March 2-4pm Open Cut introduces one of Australia’s most celebrated figurative painters, Steve Lopes, to Western Australia. Lopes uses landscape as a vehicle to investigate the human condition. He presents his signature dramatic landscapes, some occupied by lost forms or bearing the scars of human industry such as abandoned mines or the ravaged Gallipoli hillsides where he recently travelled for a National commemorative arts project. Lopes’ works are held in major collections including the NGA, Parliament House Canberra, BHP Billiton and the Time Warner Collection in New York.
