exploration of paint and portraiture | STEVE SALO.
Steve Salo is an Australian contemporary painter, best known for his emotive portraiture and stirring depictions of the Australian landscape.
I paint, I even paint in my sleep.
“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 am 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
