Steve Salo – Plein Air Experience at Whitewall Art Projects

We’re very excited about the upcoming art experiences Whitewall Art Projects has planned with artist Steve Salo. Steve Salo is an Australian contemporary artist, best known for his emotive portraiture and expressive landscape paintings. Salo is one of many artists exhibiting with Whitewall Art Projects Gallery, and has a solo show this March.

During the first two weeks of March, Steve will be Plein Air Painting in the Southern Highlands. The spontaneous alla prima paintings completed during his two week residency will all be exhibited for the opening weekend – a “Wet Paint” Show.

“Through the visual voice of painting, I communicate emotion. We are complex of mind and spirit, my intent as a contemporary portrait artist is to explore the human psyche through painting these complexities. I’m interested in portraying this aspect rather than focussing on the surface level alone. My landscape paintings also go beyond the visual perception, I am more concerned with portraying the feelings evoked by being in a place.” – Steve Salo
