What happens in the shed does NOT stay in the shed!

BY Kathryn Coller | 25-Nov-2019
Stephen Brasch, an award winning artist, creates aerial landscapes on large canvases from his "shed" studio. His recent exhibition was titled Paintings from the Shed and this latest exhibition is aptly titled "More Paintings from the Shed". Stephen is a visual traveller between urban and rural locations and his art flourishes when he is immersed in the environment he loves so well. Redcliffe Old Fire Station Gallery invites visitors to wander and dawdle through the various landscapes. You are encouraged to absorb the calming vibes from viewing this large body of work.

Stephen has been painting and exhibiting for over twenty years. He has a deep engagement with the landscape. The land on the northern fringe of the suburbs of Brisbane, is a conglomerate of industrial sheds, semi-rural properties, rough scrub and never-ending excavations for road upgrades and extensions.

From this ramshackle inspiration, Stephen paints works of great affection and sympathy for this tumbledown landscape. The paintings document a self-contained world which contains its own internal emotion, logic and beauty somewhat apart from the exact reality.

Recently, his paintings have become more influenced by maps and distanced from the earth. As a result the paintings have become more intense with colour and vehicles for emotion. They are landscapes of feeling.

This exhibition runs for three weeks, Beginning on 15 January until 2 February 2020. Gallery and Gift Shop are open Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 3 pm. Easy on site parking is available and gallery is wheelchair friendly.
