The Lost Ones (Ballarat)

The Lost Ones Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that also has a Basement Bar which serves fine spirits, wine and food as well as live music.  There is a thriving arts community in Ballarat.  This is a lovely old building with a large light filled gallery space on the ground floor.  Until August 5th you can enjoy an exhibition by Steve Sedgwick.  Steve is a local Ballarat artist who paints “en plein air” (out in the open – you have to brave to paint out in the open during a Ballarat winter!) and in studio.

Steve Sedgwick‘s exhibition is titled “Painted Land”.  The en plain air works are identifiable as landscapes and painted in acrylic (dries much quicker than oil paint).  These smaller  outdoor works capture that great sense of space and time in our landscape.  When he returns to the studio memory takes over, the canvases get bigger, the brush strokes fatter  and the landscape is re-calibrated into colour blocks and lines.

The outdoor and studio works are positioned side by side which makes for an interesting juxtaposition of time and place.
