Opening event: Saturday 4 December, 11-12:30pm (RSVP required)
BOLD is artist Steven Tran’s first solo exhibition. His work is about structure and movement, featuring abstract, geometric paintings and drawings which are distinct, daring and delightful.
The exhibition seeks to breakdown pressure to blend in with the crowd, encouraging people to be visible, agile and BOLD.
“My work is Bold. My exhibition is all about becoming more sensitive, more visible. It’s about performing. It’s about my favourite evolutions – emotions and paranoia. My finelined-staircases are spooky and take people somewhere else.” – Steven Tran.
Opening event: Saturday 4 December, 11-12:30pm
Exhibiting: 23 November – 20 February
Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday: 9.30am – 5:00pm
Saturday and Sunday: 10am – 4pm
