Words: Annie Tonkin

You can now find senior artist Michael Stevenson’s immersive works at Fine Arts Sydney. Originally from New Zealand, Stevenson’s art has travelled the globe, delighting viewers for decades. His works have been showcased in countries including Germany, Mexico, England, the Netherlands and the USA, to name a few.

“I’ve admired and respected Michael Stevenson’s work for almost as long as I can remember,” says Fine Arts director Ryan Moore. “I have always found encounters with his work around the world to be incredibly rich and rewarding art experiences. It is a real honour for the gallery that he has brought his work to the programme.

“There is rigour and depth to Michael’s practice that has few peers amongst makers of contemporary art … What I think I admire most is his total dedication to his work, and his incredible capacities as an object-maker and story-teller.”

Stevenson’s major solo exhibition Serene Velocity in Practice: MC510/CS183 is currently on at MUMA, Melbourne, The artist is also represented by Michael Lett Gallery, New Zealand, and Carl Freedman Gallery, UK.
