Steve Lopes has long been enchanted with the allure of migration to the far flung corners of the world and what compels people to travel far from home and all that is familiar. This curiosity is greatest towards migration to Australia and New Zealand over the last 100 years. Countries that would have appeared to be at the end of the world at that time.

"Island of Misfits" explores mysterious imagined landscapes inhabited by curious, quirky and sometimes puzzling characters. Characters that at first glance appear both exotic and intrinsic to the surrounding landscape. It evokes notions of resilience and adaptability in unfamiliar circumstances.

Lopes has held over 30 solo exhibitions around the world and is included in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia. He has long drawn the attention of critics, writers and collectors.

His works are distinctive and recognizable for both their unique style and the obvious labour of love that has gone into producing them.

Highly collectable, this will be Steve Lopes second solo exhibition with Mitchell Fine Art in Brisbane.

The exhibition is showing from 7th June to 1st July. Steve Lopes will be attending the opening night on Friday 9th June and will also be presenting an Artist Talk in the gallery on Saturday 10th June.
