Steve May - 'In the Park'
Wednesday 10 April - Sunday 12 May 2019
Steve May is multi-medium artist who likes to paint unconventional art often rendered in dramatic chiaroscuro in a figurative realist style while imparting a contemporary flair.
Synonymous with energy, fervour and controlled splashes of dynamic colour and shading, May’s decade-long participation in the Australian art scene now sees him skilfully traversing the figurative and the loose, the internal and the external. In the Park confirms that May has achieved a confidence within his practice that affords him a freedom to comfortably reinvent his work in terms of both physical form and subject matter. It is May’s ability to combine looseness with an element of controlled accuracy that sees him achieve outcomes that while at times abstracted, remain clearly recognisable forms.
