Stephen Phibbs
BIO


Stephen Phibbs is a visual artist whose contempory paintings have found a steady stream of
interest from academic and art buying circles. In 2001 he held his first solo exhibition “Other
frontiers” at Istral gallery in Woollahra, Sydney. The body of work was a thought provoking series
of paintings, that deconstruct the signs and symbols of Australian popular culture. From 2002
his art practice evolved through seeing the landscape through a multi-dimensional approach. He
says” These works are about the metaphysical and physical elements of a site. The relationships
and juxtapositions discovered in these chance objects signify multiple options of interpretation,
creating simultaneous perspectives depending on the viewer”.

From 2003-2007 saw successful solo and prestigous group exhibitions with many works going
into private collections around the world. In 2006 he was selected in an emerging artists touring
exhibition of NSW regional galleries. Also in 2006 Stephen was identified as an export ready pro-
fessional artist to receive international marketing support through the (VAN) initiative (NSW Min-
istry for the Arts and Austrade). In 2007 he was selected through a (VAN) Initiative to paticipate in
the ABC documentary series Painting Australia aired nationally and in South-east Asia and the
UK. This resulted in representation with Shubert Gallery in Queensland. This same year, Stephen
held a solo exhibition - The Year of Living Dangerously - at Newtown Fine Art Trader, Sydney.

In 2008 he held a exhibition - Over Land and Sea - at Artpiece Gallery, Mullumbimby. Depicting
images of the iconic shipwreck, the Cherry Venture, which ran aground onto Rainbow Beach,
Queensland in 1974. This has resulted in a regional gallery exhibition on shipwrecks to be held in
Caloundra, Queensland in April 2011. In 2008-2010 he has exhibited in over 14 group exhibitions
on the East Coast of Australia. In 2010 he explores the fragilty of the Australian landscape in his
own distinctive way.

alyst to move beyond what is already known. The energising and challenging nature of developing
ideas and processes is my motivating force. Through my creative journey, I seek to unify my proc-
ess in art and life and hopefully provide work of interest.
