Steve Parkhill

Artist’s Statement/Bio

Steve took up visual art in 2005 and completed a Diploma of Visual Art in 2008, majoring in Painting and Printmaking. He has been a regular exhibitor in the Geelong region as well as Melbourne and country Victoria.

Steve takes interest in the concepts of chance, coincidence and circumstance. In most mediums, the end result of the artist’s actions is never predictable. The interpretation of the image, unlike the intention, is a random result depending upon the experiences of each observer leading up to the moment of viewing.
