Opening Night Thursday April 27th 6.30 – 8.30pm

Stephen Booth, an Australian painter who lived in Rome for nine years, has now returned to Melbourne.

Since the end of the 1990s his style has evolved from bold, graphic botanicals to the romanticism of Italy, depicted through objects out of context based on arabesque and oriental motifs as well as religious icons.

His last exhibition, Serenissima, further explored this concept but with a Venetian theme. Realisations brings together his passion for food and design, depicted in intricate plates displaying comestibles, along with his surreal interpretations of food, Italian architecture and landscapes.
