Steve Lopes 'China Studies'

Exhibition 22 October - 16 November 2013 at Stella Downer Fine Art, 2 Danks St, Waterloo, Sydney. Co-curated by Owen Craven. In 'China Studies', the artist turns his gaze to village life in China, resting his eyes on scenes often overlooked. Village characters come to life in LOPES' sketches and studies, granting a sense of timelessness to a community in the midst of shifting change.
