About the Artist
Best known for his work as a public art
sculptor, Steve's minimal and quirky furniture pieces and elegant
lights are also eagerly collected as art objects. In his most
recent exhibition, Sport Balls (Foot, Cricket, Tennis, Soft, Bowling
and Basket) are all incorporated into his latest aluminium
constructions, in which the chair form becomes an exciting
sculptural object, far removed from the comfortable piece of
furniture beloved by the TV spectator.
Graduating from Curtin University (1992), he won the City of Perth Open Award in the same year, was the recipient of the Domus Scholarship, RMIT, Melbourne in 1993, and, with Anne Neil, of the Basel Exchange in 1994/95. In 1997/98 he was awarded a grant by the Australia Council to develop new furniture, and in 1999 he received an Asialink residency in Seoul, South Korea.
