A Vizard Foundation Contemporary Artist Project: Steenhuffel by Stephen Bush — Melbourne, Australia
Melbourne artist Steve Bush’s surreal sensibility will be on display at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne, in an exhibition of new and old work spanning the past 30 years. Bush can be described as a figurative painter who borrows from historical landscape painting conventions and 19th century photography. The exhibition follows Bush’s award as the fourth recipient of the $30,000 Vizard Foundation Contemporary Artist Project grant, which enables the selected mid-career artist to pursue new directions in their practice and make new work. Date: 27 MAR - 06 JUL, 2014. Art credit: The caretaker (1988) by Stephen Bush. Oil on canvas, 71 x 60 cm.
