The imagery in Steve Tyerman‘s new body of work fosters warm, escapist thoughts of a haven beyond everyday concerns. He explains, that the title of the exhibition, An Island in the Sun, refers to the special relationship Australians have with coastal regions. ‘There is something magical about being on the edge of this huge island and looking out to the vastness of the ocean and what lies beyond – and beneath. Despite the ocean’s enormous life-force and the hustle of holidaymakers along its beaches, the shoreline has a strangely calming effect.’ Characterised by the intense involvement in the materiality of paint, Tyerman’s art communicates an essence beyond the strictures of traditional landscape painting. ‘I want to create pictures that make my visual and emotional experiences palpable on the canvas.’
