Steps Gallery

Steps Gallery is a purpose built exhibition space right on Lygon Street, Carlton. The Gallery is owned and has been run by the Meat Industry Employees' Superannuation Fund since 1992.

It is within walking distance of Melbourne's central business district and attracts a lot of passing pedestrian traffic. The gallery's entry is through the foyer of one of the city's most acclaimed modern buildings, its highly polished parquetry floor and the floor-to-ceiling glass doors open into a glassed-in courtyard coffee shop to create a vibrant and inviting space for the exhibition of work on walls, or small three dimensional works.

The Steps Gallery is located Ground Floor 62 Lygon Street, Carlton South near the Trades Hall building. Melways Ref 2B F11.

"There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect."

~Gilbert K.Chesteron

"In all my work in this solo exhibition I have tried to create emotive, eloquent and actual portrayals of South Africa which will transcend all the sense of place, time and space to arouse a heartfelt memory and evoke the viewer to reminisce, become involved and experience a sincere, warm response. It is honesty and pureness of expression that personifies my own sensitive and very personal response to a country that so many South Africans have had to leave but cannot ever forget or stop loving"

by Louise Curtin

Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 27

The work in this exhibition 'Moments' has spanned over the last 15 years. Snatches of memory, experiences and grief are evident. The fragility of the human experience is the overriding theme. Loose brushstroke and a colourist approach enhance the expressiveness of the work.

Many of the pieces celebrate the ordinariness of life, but the extraordinary experience within them. This is evident in the social paintings.

From the landscapes which I have done over the last 30 years, abstraction has developed. These call on the beauty evoked from nature. The beauty of enlivened landscape continues to be represented.
