METROPOLIS GALLERY – Steve Salo: Recent Paintings
18 May @ 9:00 am - 10 June @ 5:00 pm
Steve Salo: Recent Paintings at Metropolis Gallery reflects the artist’s strong interests in both landscape and portraiture. After a residency in 2017 at Police Point on the Mornington Peninsula, Salo has produced inspirational paintings based on that region. His continuing exploration of paint and portraiture has also resulted in highly expressive new works reflecting the human presence.
Salo’s profile as a contemporary artist continues to grow, with paintings shortlisted in a number of prestigious prizes across Australia. It has just been announced that his self portrait Historia – Self Portrait has been chosen to hang in the 2018 Salon des Refusés (selected from Archibald Prize entries) at the National Trust S.H. Ervin Gallery in Sydney, with another large portrait having also been selected in 2016 for this important exhibition.
