Anthea Polson Art presents a solo exhibition featuring the works of Steve Tyerman.
Tyerman’s current body of work expresses his multi-faceted response to the coastal regions of Southern Queensland and Northern NSW. He understands what the appeal of being at a seaside locale has, for not only most ‘Aussies’, but humankind in general.
“A feeling of connection and sense of release occurs when sitting at the ocean’s edge,” he muses. “There is a calming effect in the ocean’s constant movement, it’s the great vastness and the thought of what lies beyond, and within, that is mesmerizing”.
Rather than site-specific seascape renditions, Tyerman’s paintings aspire to give an immersive experience of place. “I titled the exhibition, A World Within a World, because that’s how it is for me when observing nature. You can see the big picture, the overall scene laid out before you but when looking closer, there is a whole world of life and activity happening within. I want my paintings to reflect this in some way”.
Opening Event: Saturday 10 December, 4-6pm.
